investment by a consortium led by POSCO and China Steel Corporation (CSC) to 
acquire a joint venture interest in ArcelorMittal's Labrador Trough iron ore 
mining and infrastructure assets in Quebec, Canada. 
The consortium acquired an 11.05% interest in the joint venture for total 
consideration of US$810 million in cash, with ArcelorMittal's wholly owned 
subsidiary ArcelorMittal Mines Canada retaining an 88.95% interest in the

The second instalment of the investment by the consortium, which will increase 
the consortium's interest in the joint venture to 15%, remains subject to 
various conditions and is expected to close in the second quarter of 2013.
