Peruvian iron ore export prices in October rose 43.4 percent, year-over-year, from $60.4/mt FOB in October 2019 to $86.6/mt FOB in October this year, said the nation’s central bank, BCRP.

Peruvian iron ore export volumes in October have almost reached pre-Covid levels, as the highest export volume levels reported so far in the year were achieved in Q1, with volumes ranging from 1.7 million mt in January and March to 2 million mt, as reported in February this year.
