Rio Tinto has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Dalian Port Co Ltd to jointly develop its first bonded area operations to blend iron ore in China's port of Dalian, to help better serve steel mills in North China & widen offerings for customers across Asia. The first batch of iron ore fines were blended from high-grade IOC concentrate from Canada and Rio Tinto’s SP10 from Western Australia

Many of China’s steel producing capacities lie in the northern area, with top producer Hebei province along with Liaoning province together accounting for more than 30% of the national crude steel output.

Dalian port has blended over 46 million tonnes of iron ore within its bonded area since 2016 when it first started the operation, the most among Chinese ports
