Rio Tinto released its quarterly operational report for the third quarter ending September 30, 2023 which included Iron Ore Company of Canada ("IOC") production and sales information. Specifically, Rio Tinto announced that in the third quarter of 2023, IOC had total saleable iron ore production of 4.06 million tonnes, comprised of 2.12 million tonnes of pellets and 1.94 million tonnes of concentrate for sale ("CFS").

Rio Tinto also announced that IOC had total iron ore sales in the third quarter of 2023 of 3.91 million tonnes, comprised of 1.82 million tonnes of pellets and 2.10 million tonnes of CFS. Rio Tinto's full year production guidance for IOC has also been reduced to 15.8 to 16.7 million tonnes (previously 17.0 to 18.7 million tonnes). Comparisons to prior quarters and Rio Tinto's commentary on the changes can be found in Rio Tinto's quarterly operational report which is posted on their website. Please note that the IOC sales tonnages are calculated slightly differently for Labrador Iron Ore Royalty Corporation's ("LIORC") royalty.

LIORC will be releasing its full third quarter report after the market close on November 2, 2023 .

The Corporation holds a 15.10% equity interest in IOC directly and through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Hollinger-Hanna Limited, and receives a 7% gross overriding royalty and a 10 cent per tonne commission on all iron ore products produced, sold and shipped by IOC.

Top 10 Iron-producing Countries

Iron ore prices have displayed volatility in the past few years as the world has dealt with the economic uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 lockdowns, the Russia-Ukraine war and rising levels of inflation.

Prices for the base metal reached a record high of over US$220 per metric ton (MT) in May 2021, but it wasn't long before they declined to a low point of US$84.50 in November of that year. At the time, analysts identified lower demand from China alongside rising supply levels as reasons why prices dropped so drastically in late 2021.

Iron ore prices have rebounded to trade in the US$120 to US$130 range in 2023, spurred on by supply issues in Australia and Brazil, as well as the Russia-Ukraine war; higher export duties in India and renewed demand from China have also contributed to the commodity's higher prices. Positive sentiment in the iron ore market is expected to continue into 2024.
