SHANGHAI, Apr. 20 (SMM) – Iron ore output at Rio Tinto grew to 84 million tonnes during the first quarter of 2016 ending Mar. 31, up 13 per cent year-on-year.  

FMG, Australia’s third largest iron ore exporter, also lifted its iron ore output in Q1, up 14 percent year-on-year. 

Rising prices of iron ore are believed to be reason behind high output at major foreign ore producers.
