Materials Shares News Fortescue Metals (FMG)

Fortescue Metals ASX FMGFortescue Metals (FMG) is an iron ore miner, with operations located in the lucrative Pilbara iron ore province in Western Australia.

FMG was one of the market’s hot shares last year when it doubled its share price after bottoming out near $3.50 in May.

On 25 March, FMG downgraded its 1Q11 production guidance due to the wet weather events at the beginning of the year.

FMG now expects quarterly production to be at the lower end of its previous guidance of 8.5 – 9.0 million tonnes of iron ore.

However, Fortescue Metals said that operations are now back to normal and that its Christmas Creek ore processing, stockpile and train loading facility has now commenced.
