BHP fourth-quarter iron ore output rises 7%, 2021 outlook misses estimate
July 21 (Reuters) - BHP Group BHP.AX, BHPB.L on Tuesday reported a 7% rise in fourth-quarter iron ore production, led by a rebound in demand from top consumer China after coronavirus-driven disruptions.
The world's largest listed miner said it produced 76 million tonnes (Mt) of iron ore in the three months ended June 30, up from 71 Mt a year earlier.
BHP said it expects to produce between 276 Mt and 286 Mt of iron ore next year, missing a UBS forecast of 287.5 Mt.
