Widely recognized for innovation in iron ore mining and processing technologies and joint-venture
management, we are committed to providing high-quality, cost-effective iron ore products. We produce 13
grades of iron ore pellets, including standard, fluxed and high manganese, for North American customers,
and supply Asia Pacific steelmakers with direct-shipping fines and lump iron ore.
Our USIO mines have the capability to produce DR-grade pellets, which offers the opportunity to enter
the market for ferrous scrap substitutes and sell to leading mini mills. We are pursuing this opportunity to
further capitalize on the growing potential of electric arc furnace (EAF) steel production in North America.
