As for the accumulated period of January to November 2020, Peruvian iron ore output totaled 7.91 million mt, 11.5 percent down, year-over-year, due to Covid-19 and a nationwide halt in activities in mid-March 2020.

Peru’s key iron ore producer, Shougang Hierro Peru, accounted for 97.1 percent of November’s total iron ore output.
