Fortescue expansion plans necessary: Rowley

EXPANDING its Pilbara iron ore developments to 200 million tonnes per annum is necessary to meet growing Chinese demand, Fortescue Metals Group chief operating officer Graeme Rowley said today, rejecting criticisms that the company’s growth plans will detract from its initial focus of reaching a production target of 45Mtpa by May 2008.

Speaking to MiningNews.net, Rowley said it was not appropriate for the company to simply rest on its 45Mtpa production target.
