Not according to this official government site. 44% of it comes from Australia.

https://www.aph.gov.au/DocumentStore.as ... bId=409465

And here...930 million tonnes of Iron Ore, the world largest producer. Almost 50% of total global output.

https://www.nsenergybusiness.com/featur ... countries/

Basically, if Australia turns the taps off, the global steel production is at a standstill and your German Cars will be a million bucks each as prices sky rocket because Australia stops the supply.

So yeh, it’s the king at the top of the tree alright,

:lol: you went from largest steel producer, to largest crude steel producer and when you got called out you've gone down to iron ore where you export a few hundred million tonnes....

oh jeez Paphitis. Australia is irrelevent.

Ok sure if you want to get caught with semantics. We can produce steel and do so but the price is high, because of our production costs. We are better off selling iron ore and buying refined steel as it’s cheaper for us. That’s a fact of life for an advanced developed economy.

But, the global steel industry is still under immense influence from Australua. You said we are not even a major player but as the worlds largest Iron Ore producer we can virtually create chaos on the world if we stopped our Iron Ire exports which amount to nearly 50% of global steel output.

In other words, you are fucked if Australia shuts down its mines overnight which it does do from time to time for maintenance or to drive the prices higher. So yeh, it’s influential alright,

Having said that, I know what Australian Bluescope Steel is worth. About double the price of Chy-nese Steel. I buy it because I know it’s the best on the market. It’s a premium product and I won’t skimp on a couple of grand buying it.

A Bluescope Sheet is thicker by about .3 of a mm. More sturdier.

Arrium generates approximately 14,000 jobs through its activities, employs nearly 7,000 people
directly, and spends nearly $4b in goods, services and taxes each year. We produce
approximately 44 per cent of the total amount of crude steel made in Australia each year,
with a
total steelmaking capacity of 2.6 million tonnes per annum (MTPA).


Are you illiterate, stupid, sick lier, what??

We have already been through this with DT, stupid.

Australua produces 50% of Iron Ore output. So I’m not entirely wrong am I when out of the total steel production globally, 50% is made from Australian Ore. So Australia provides the raw material doesn’t it?

Plus we do produce refined steel in Australia. We have massive steel factories in WA, and NSW. We choose not to make as much anymore because it’s cheaper to buy it from overseas. Our production cost is high.

Now imagine if Australia stops doing that. Stops supplying the Iron Ore. it can do that if it wants to. And we won’t starve either.

Well global steel production cones to a stand still does it not? Unless of course Russia and Brazil can pick up the slack which they won’t be able to. Steel prices will sky rocket will they not? Must do as the supply is no longer there, demand stays same, prices will double over night. Make sense to you?

Then what happens? Well the EU car manufacturers and economy will probable become dust!

In other words sunshine, Australia IS to the steel industry what Saudi Arabia is to Oil. We are the king pins! So stuck that up your arse!

That’s what makes us strong and able to hold our own with Chy-na. They have never been brave enough to embargo our Iron Ore. never because they would be on their knees and your IPhones will go up by 1000%. Your Mercedes and BMWs will go up and if Australia keeps it up, probably bankrupt too with hundreds of thousands losing their jobs.

How does it make you feel that every bit of steel in Cyprus is likely to be made by 50% Australian Iron Ore, Every car, every high rise, every bit of steel in your house? You may buy your steel from Chy-na or Egypt but where is the raw material coming from? You think about that for a minute.

Just like when you go to the bowser, and fill up your car, it’s likely made from Saudi crude.

There is a reason why we are able to have a trade war with Chy-na. It’s because we have the power to stick it up them real good. All they can do about it is hit non critical areas like Barley and wine.

So yeh, Australia isn’t insignificant. It’s the steel over lord globally. We control the prices, as we control the global supply. In other words, the global steel output is heavily dependent on Australian Iron Ore. So smoke it and enjoy!

Put it this way, if Australia stops selling this stuff to Chy-na, they are gone. Like on their knees and off to the IMF.

Nigel Farage said yesterday that Tony Blair is an extremely bright gentleman who gets things done.

He then publicly endorsed Tony Blair to be the UK’s vaccination Tsar!

Only an illitterate or intentional lier would read
We produce

And pass it as

And only a huge blaber-blaber like you would write tons of childish excuses when caught decorated with tons of more fantasies.

It was just a mistake, not intentional.

In Australia we hear this all the time that we produce most of the global steel. About half of it.

What they mean is we produce about half the globes Iron Ore output which makes steel.

Got it?

Now what part is the fantasy there? Do you understand that without Iron Ore, there is no steel? Without Cruse there is no petrol.

Therefore, I’m hardly wrong. Australia IS the raw material supplier for about 50% of all global steel production. On that scale, Australia IS the most important steel country which can Willy Billy control the price of steel and cause havoc on the market in the same way the Gulf States can with Oul and Gas. It’s a fact!

What Australia does here has far reaching affects on every country, the car industry, the construction industry, technology and just about everything. And it’s almost virtually a monopoly. The other players like Russia and Brazil are insignificant in comparison.
