Anglesey Mining’s 33% owned associate Labrador Iron Mines Holdings Limited
(TSX:LIM) is pleased to announce that the first shipment of LIM iron ore sailed
today bound for China.
The Salt Lake City departed the Port of Sept-Iles at 4.50am EDT today carrying
a total of 167,167 wet tonnes of iron ore.
This ore was sold to the Iron Ore Company of Canada (“IOC”) under the
arrangements LIM has entered into with IOC for the sale and shipping of all of
LIM’s calendar 2011 iron ore production. The sale price for the iron ore is
based on the actual realized prices to Chinese customers, less an allocation
for handling, loading, shipping and sales costs.
John Kearney, Chairman and Chief Executive of LIM stated “This is a momentous
day in the history of LIM and is the culmination of six years of endeavor. We
are very proud to join the limited group of Canadian mining companies exporting
iron ore and we are particularly proud that we have done so whilst maintaining
our independence and without taking on debt. We now look forward to expanding
on this first sailing in the months and years to come.”
