13:48 EDTAKSAK Steel says incident occured at Middletown Ohio Works facility
AK Steel said that the blast furnace at its Middletown Works facility experienced a mechanical failure in the charging apparatus internal to the furnace on June 22. The company said that there were no injuries and it is continuing to assess the situation and investigate the root cause of the incident. The company said that it has a contingency plan in place and is executing the plan. The blast furnace was taken offline to prevent any damage to the furnace and to position the furnace for the start-up once the repairs are completed. Prior to the completion of the repairs, the company will utilize its Butler Works electric arc furnace and its Ashland Works blast furnace and, to the extent necessary, purchase merchant carbon slabs to service its customers. At this time, the company does not have a specific estimate of the cost or an exact date for completion of the repairs, though it currently expects to complete the repairs as early as sometime in July, though the repairs may be completed later in the third quarter. The company noted that it maintains property damage and business interruption insurance, and it currently expects that its uninsured losses will be between $10M-$27.5M. The company currently expects this outage will impact both the second and third quarter shipments and financial results.

Shares of iron ore producers are falling after Reuters reported that Australia reduced its 2015 price forecast for iron ore to $54.40 a tonne from $60.40 a tonne. According to Reuters, Australia's current projection on iron ore prices is based on its view that China, the commodity's main market, will produce less steel in 2015 and 2016 as as the seaborne supply of iron ore increases. PRICE ACTION: Cliffs Natural Resources (CLF) is down over 10%, BHP Billiton (BHP) is lower by 2.3%, and Vale (VALE) is down 4% in afternoon trading. Steel stocks, including United States Steel (X), AK Steel Holding (AKS), and Nuco (NUE) are also sliding in afternoon trading.
