London Mining upbeat on output

Iron ore miner London Mining said yesterday it expects 2013 production at the higher end of its previous forecast range of 3.3m to 3.6m dry metric tonnes, boosted by higher production at its Marampa mine in Sierra Leone. London Mining, one of the few junior iron ore companies currently producing in West Africa, maintained its 2013 sales forecast of 3.6m to 3.8m dry metric tonnes. The company reported a smaller full-year loss in March.
