In 2015, we produced 73.7 million tonnes of iron ore and 6.29 million tonnes of coking coal

Our mining operations

ArcelorMittal has both iron ore and metallurgical coal reserves and is among the largest iron ore producers in the world.

Our iron ore mining operations are located in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Liberia, Bosnia, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan. Our metallurgical coal mining operations are located in the United States and Kazakhstan.

In 2015, our mines and strategic contracts produced 73.7 million tonnes of iron ore and 6.29 million tonnes of coking coal and PCI.  

Our acquisition of Baffinland Iron Ore Mines, in partnership with Nunavut Iron Ore, has consolidated our position as one of a major iron ore producers. As part of this project, we developed a mine in Nunavut, a territory in the Canadian Arctic.

Iron ore is the primary raw material in steelmaking and coal is used as fuel to melt the oreOur long-life iron ore and coal reserves provide a measure of security of supply and an important natural hedge against raw material volatility and global supply constraints.
