IRC inks off-take contract with Russian client for K&S iron ore

IRC Ltd. signed a long-term off-take contract with a Russian client for iron ore concentrate from its K&S mine, which will help the company mitigate the impact of railway congestion issues at the site.

As the Russian customer is located west of K&S, the monthly shipments will be unaffected by the congestion affecting the Trans-Siberian railway, which is the company's route for customers in China.

IRC also reported that issues at the mine's drying unit have negatively affected production volumes, citing poor quality work by contractors. The company noted that the requirement for the drying unit will gradually decrease in the first quarter of 2018 as winter ends.

Yury Makarov, the company's CEO, commented that "despite not operating at full capacity, K&S continues to bring positive cash flow to IRC."
