Rio Tinto's iron ore production and sales declined in the first quarter of this year
According to the information resource network, the Australian mining giant Rio Tinto Group announced in the first quarter of this year's production and sales report that the first quarter of Rio Tinto iron ore production and shipments fell on a month-on-month and year-on-year basis.
一季度，由于1月兰伯特角A港口火灾影响Robe Valley铁矿块矿和粉矿的生产，以及3月热带气旋唯若妮卡导致临时性停产，力拓铁矿石产量由去年四季度的9141万吨环比大幅减产12.2%至8022万吨（按力拓股权计为6658万吨），同比降幅为8.0%。 受铁矿石产量下滑以及热带气旋唯若妮卡导致港口设施破坏影响，一季度力拓铁矿石发货量由去年四季度的9268万吨环比显著下降21.5%至7271万吨（按力拓股权计为6033万吨），同比也大幅下滑13.7%。力拓预测，今年其皮尔巴拉地区铁矿石发货量为3.33亿-3.43亿吨（按100%股权计），低于此前预估的3.38亿-3.50亿吨。因此，力拓表示将下调今年铁矿石发货量目标。未来，力拓将继续秉承价值优先（而非规模优先）的经营策略，继续通过提高生产效率、严格控制生产成本及资本支出规模的方式来最大限度地产生自由现金流，并确保自身的低成本竞争优势，使主营业务在中长期内实现可持续增长，并为股东提供稳健回报。
In the first quarter, due to the fire at Port A at Cape Lambert in January, which affected the production of the Robe Valley iron ore block and powder ore, and the tropical cyclone Vicenza in March caused a temporary shutdown, Rio Tinto's iron ore production was from the fourth quarter of last year. The 91.41 million tons of the chain ratio decreased significantly by 12.2% to 80.22 million tons (according to Rio Tinto's shareholding of 66.58 million tons), a year-on-year decrease of 8.0%. Affected by the decline in iron ore production and the destruction of port facilities caused by tropical cyclone Veronica, the shipment of Rio Tinto iron ore in the first quarter decreased significantly by 21.5% from the previous quarter's 92.68 million tons to 27.71 million tons. The shareholding was calculated to be 60.33 million tons, a significant drop of 13.7% year-on-year. Rio Tinto forecasts that its shipment of iron ore in the Pilbara region this year will be 333 million to 343 million tons (based on 100% stake), lower than the previous estimate of 338 million to 350 million tons. Therefore, Rio Tinto said it will lower its iron ore shipment target this year.Therefore, Rio Tinto said it will lower its iron ore shipment target this year. In the future, Rio Tinto will continue to adhere to the value-first (rather than scale-first) business strategy and continue to maximize free cash flow and ensure its low cost by improving production efficiency, strictly controlling production costs and capital expenditure scale. And ensure their own low-cost competitive advantage, so that the main business in the medium to long-term sustainable growth, and provide shareholders with steady returns.
