    Rio Tinto cuts 2021 iron ore shipments forecast on labour squeeze

    MELBOURNE (Reuters) -Rio Tinto Group on Friday reduced its 2021 iron ore shipments forecast, as a tighter labour market in Western Australia delayed the completion of a new greenfield mine at Gudai-Darri. "It has been another difficult quarter operationally and ... we recognise the opportunity to raise our performance," said chief executive officer Jakob Stausholm. The miner now expects 2021 Pilbara iron ore shipments at between 320 million tonnes (mt) and 325 mt, down from a previous range of 325 mt to 340 mt.
