SHANGHAI, June 9 -- Anglo-Australian resource giant Rio Tinto Ltd. (RIO.AU) has notified Chinese steelmakers that the price of iron ore for the July-September period will be raised some 20% from the previous quarter, the state-run China Securities Journal reported Wednesday.

The price offer of $147 a metric ton "was sent to us via an email, and (Rio Tinto) is waiting for our reply," the newspaper cited an official from the international trading department of a large steel mill as saying.

The quarterly hike in iron ore prices is similar to what Rio Tinto offered to Japanese steelmakers, it said.
