Iron Ore Mining in Canada to 2020

Synopsis

Timetric's 'Iron Ore Mining in Canada to 2020' report comprehensively covers Canadian reserves of iron ore, reserves by type and region, the historic and forecast data on iron ore production, iron ore production by province and selected iron ore mines, iron ore prices, historic and forecast iron ore consumption and ores and concentrates trade, the stage of the Canadian construction industry and iron ores and concentrates exports by country.

The report also includes factors affecting demand for iron ore, profiles of major iron ore producing companies and information on the active, exploration and development iron ore projects.

The Fiscal Regime section provides information about the country’s regulatory authority, laws, licenses and other fiscal regime information such as taxes, rates and other charges applicable to the mining of the commodity in the country.

It is an essential tool for companies active in Canadian mining, and for new competitors considering entering the industry.

Summary

Globally, the country had the eighth-largest crude iron ore reserves at 6.3 billion tonnes (Bnt) as of January 2015, with the majority of iron ore deposits located in Newfoundland and Labrador, followed by Quebec and British Colombia. Canadian iron ore production was 41 million tonnes (Mt) in 2014, lower by 4.2% over 2013 due to the closure of the Wabush Scully mine due to its unsustainably high-cost structure.

Scope

The report contains an overview of the Canadian iron ore mining industry together with the key factors affecting the industry and demand for the commodity.

It also provides information about reserves, historic and forecast data on iron ore production, iron ore consumption, ores and concentrates exports, the competitive landscape and active, exploration and development iron ore projects.

    Reasons To Buy

      Key Highlights
      • Deposit-appraisal and exploration expenditures in Canada are expected to decline in 2015 to CAD 1.93 billion (US$ 1.75 billion) – the fourth successive decline and this could impact future mine production.
      • In contrast to production levels, domestic iron ore consumption was 12.15Mt in 2014, around 29.6% of production in 2014.
      • Iron ores and concentrates exports were 40.3Mt in 2014, up by 5.8% over 2013, while China, the Netherlands, France and South Korea were the major exports markets, collectively accounting for 76% of total exports in 2014.
