Weaker markets and planned upgrades blamed for lower volumes
Anglo-Australian miner Rio Tinto recorded a rise in its borates
production in Q3 2013, but said that titanium dioxide
(TiO2) feedstock production had fallen off.
TiO2 feedstock production was 7% lower than Q3 2012
and 19% lower than production the previous quarter, the group
said in its operations review.
