U. S. Steel Canada, formerly Stelco, scraps plan to sell stake in Wabush Mines

Mar 4, 2008 | Posted by: The Canadian Press | Full story: The Canadian Press

“Cliffs believes that terminating negotiations and remaining a partner in the Wabush Mines joint venture is the best course of action for all stakeholders at the current time”

- The company formerly known as Stelco, and its U.S. partner, have thwarted attempts by rival steelmaker ArcelorMittal Dofasco Inc. to take control of the Wabush Mines iron ore venture in Labrador and Quebec.

Hamilton-based U.S. Steel Canada Inc. and partner Cleveland Cliffs Inc., said Tuesday they had withdrawn from negotiations to sell their combined 71 per cent stake in the Wabush Mines company to ArcelorMittal Dofasco Inc., also of Hamilton.

The former Stelco, acquired last summer by United States Steel Corp. (NYSE:X), holds a 44.6 per cent stake in Wabush Mines, while Cleveland-Cliffs owns 26.8 per cent and ArcelorMittal Dofasco holds the remaining 28.6 per cent. Read more
