PRICING NOTICE: Proposal to amend Fastmarkets’ 66% Fe iron ore concentrate index specifications

Fastmarkets proposes removing the undersize maximum specification of its index for iron ore 66% Fe iron ore concentrate, cfr Qingdao, $/tonne [MB-IRO-0013].

The current sizing specifications of this index are:

Maximum Size >80% <0.15mm. Undersize maximum 20%<0.05mm

The consultation period for this proposed amendment starts from Monday May 4 and will end on Friday May 29. The amendment will take place, subject to market feedback, on Friday June 5.
