ArcelorMittal has today signed a definitive agreement to divest its minority interest in Wabush Mines, Canada. ArcelorMittal's 28.6% stake in Wabush Mines is being sold to Consolidated Thompson Iron Mines Ltd.(TSX Venture: CLM).

ArcelorMittal will receive a consideration of USD34.28 million for the stake.

 ArcelorMittal's stake in Wabush Mines is no longer a core part of the company's mining strategy. The mine represented 31 million tons of iron ore reserve and 1.2 million tons of iron ore produced for ArcelorMittal in 2008.

After the disposal ArcelorMittal continues to have significant mining operations and resources in Canada including ArcelorMittal Mines Canada, formerly Quebec Cartier Mining. Canada also remains an important jurisdiction for ArcelorMittal's future growth strategy in both mining and steelmaking.
