United iron ore mine

Report summary

United is a surface mine in Minnesota's Mesabi Iron Range, near the city of Eveleth. The operation was previously run by United Mining Co, Ltd., which maintained a partial ownership stake in the mine until 2008, when Cliffs purchased the outstanding 30%. In August 2015, Cliffs temporarily idled the United mine as a result of reduced demand from the company's steel-producing customers. Almost a year later, in June 2016, Cliffs announced the restart of the mining facility following a new long-term commercial agreement with ArcelorMittal.
