Atlas confident about hitting targets

Atlas Iron is confident of meeting its full year producrion targets as it continues talks about developing a Pilbara rail solution to support its longer term growth.

The Pilbara iron ore miner expects some volatility in the iron ore price but believes many analysts are overly negative, and fail to appreciate the constraints that will slow global supply growth.

"We don't believe the iron ore price is going to $80 per tonne for any sustained period of time," Atlas Iron managing director Ken Brinsden told reporters after the release of the company's production results.

Analysts have cut their estimates for iron ore prices this year on expectations demand will moderate and steel production will slow in China.

Mr Brinsden said some commentators did not take into account unusual events such as the recent negative production results in Brazil and India exiting the seaborne trade.

Atlas is currently working with fellow miner BrockmanResources and rail operator Aurizon about developing an integrated rail and port infratsrcture solution in the Pilbara.
