Rio seeks iron ore premium from China mills in likely pricing war revival, sources say

Australian miner Rio Tinto is asking Chinese steel mills to pay a premium for its highest grade iron ore product for the first time since an annual pricing system collapsed in 2010, two sources familiar with the situation said.

 The demand by the world’s No. 2 iron ore miner comes as Chinese steel producers recover from years of losses, buoying demand for the steelmaking raw material, but could revive tensions between miners and mills over pricing that they seemed to have ditched six years ago. click here, more and for Two days Free Trial drop your missed call on -9303093093.

Rio is seeking up to $1 per tonne more than the index price for its Pilbara iron ore product, or PB fines, from Chinese mills on long-term contracts for 2017, the sources said, in a break from a years-long trend of pricing at spot values. Previously, Rio was selling the ore at a premium only to traders.

The miner has also pushed up the premium it seeks from traders to between $2 and $2.50 per tonne over the index price for the same product for January to April, they said.

That would be a record high and up from a premium of $1.50 for the four-month period through December this year, said one of the sources who works closely with Rio in China.
