Rio Tinto declares force majeure on certain Pilbara iron ore shipments post-fire

Rio Tinto declared force majeure on some of its iron ore shipments due to a fire earlier this month at its Cape Lambert port facility in Pilbara, Western Australia, Reuters reported Jan. 14.

The fire damaged part of the Robe River facility at Cape Lambert, which separates lump and fine iron ore products, according to the report.

Rio Tinto has a 53% stake in the Robe River Iron Associates joint venture, and partners Mitsui & Co. Ltd. and Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corp. have a 33% and 14% stake, respectively.

The company said the fire had no impact on the shipping of all other Pilbara iron ore products.
