ArcelorMittal to Increase Mining Production, Die Welt Reports
The company, which produced 54.1 million metric tons ore and 8 million metric tons coals last year, has placed a top priority on securing resources, the newspaper said, citing an interview with Frank Schulz, head of ArcelorMittal’s German unit.
ArcelorMittal already produces 42 percent of the iron ore it uses and aims to increase that to 77 percent by 2015 by using deposits in Canada and Liberia, Die Welt reported.
