A consortium including South Korean steelmaker POSCO is seeking to acquire a roughly $1 billion stake in a Canadian iron ore mine operator controlled by ArcelorMittal ( MT ), South Korean financial publication Money Today reported on Wednesday, according to Reuters

The bidding group seeks to acquire about a 10% stake in ArcelorMittal Mines Canada, with POSCO looking to invest $200-300 million and the rest coming from its partners, Money Today said citing unidentified sources in the merger and acquisition industry.

Morgan Stanley ( MS ) is advising POSCO, it said.
