12:17 EDTCLF, JOY, VALE, RIO, BHPMining companies fall after China seeks to slow housing market
A number of mining companies are retreating after the Chinese government ordered some municipalities to take steps to slow down the country's housing market. China is the world's largest consumer of copper, iron ore, and coal. The country's cabinet on Friday ordered cities with "excessively fast" growth to raise down payment requirements and interest rates on purchases of second homes, according to Bloomberg. The government also indicated that it would seek to more strictly enforce a law requiring individuals to pay a 20% tax on their profits from selling homes when the selling price is available, the news service added. Separately, Bloomberg reported that China is creating large mining companies that will be able to compete with global mining conglomerates for acquisitions of foreign companies. In early afternoon trading, Cliffs Natural (CLF) sank 5% to $24, Joy Global (JOY) dropped 4% to $59.50, Vale (VALE) gave back 3% to $18, Rio Tinto (RIO) dropped 3% to $50 and BHP Billiton (BHP) lost 1.3% to $73.

08:15 EDTCLFCliffs Natural announces revised proxy with ISS, Glass Lewis recommendations
Cliffs Natural announced that it has revised its WHITE proxy card to provide shareholders with a clear path to vote consistently with the recommendations of Institutional Shareholder Services, or ISS, and Glass Lewis without inadvertently providing Casablanca Capital with a majority of the board as a result of Cliffs' cumulative voting provision. While both proxy solicitation firms have recommended shareholders support four Casablanca nominees, they have recommended that Cliffs' nominees should remain as the majority of Cliffs' board. As such, Cliffs' board has reduced its slate of directors to be elected at the 2014 Annual Meeting from nine to seven candidates, with Barry J. Eldridge and Stephen M. Johnson no longer standing for re-election. With this change, shareholders can vote the company's WHITE proxy card in order to elect four of Casablanca's nominees and seven of Cliffs' nominees, which is in line with both ISS' and Glass Lewis' recommendations. In addition, Cliffs' board is offering to include Lourenco Goncalves, Joseph Rutkowski, Gabriel Stoliar, and Douglas Taylor on Cliffs' WHITE proxy card, subject to such individuals providing Cliffs with their consent to include their names on Cliffs' proxy card.

05:15 EDTRIORio Tinto raises FY14 thermal coal production outlook to 17.5M tonnes
The company's previous thermal coal production guidance was 16.7M tons. This follows a change in the production profile to produce additional higher margin thermal coal from a processing plant by-product stream at Hail Creek. As a result of this change and lower than expected production during the ramp up at Kestrel, Australian hard coking coal production has decreased to 7.4M tonnes, previously 8.2M tonnes. Semi-soft coking coal production guidance remains unchanged at 3M tonnes.Rio Tinto’s share of uranium production across Rössing and ERA in 2014 is expected to be between 4.3M-5.1M pounds. This follows operational changes at Rössing in response to current market conditions. Progression to full processing capacity at ERA is anticipated in Q3. Reference Link

12:23 EDTCLFCasblanca Capital condemns Cliffs Natural's compensation practices in letter
Casablanca Capital LP, the beneficial owner of approximately 5.2% of Cliffs Natural Resources, issued a letter to shareholders in connection with Casablanca’s campaign for fundamental change at Cliffs and its nomination of six director candidates for election to the Board of Directors at the company’s upcoming 2014 Annual Meeting of Shareholders on July 29. In the letter, Casablanca details escalating management compensation while shareholder returns have plummeted, the opaque nature of the management bonus and review process, and the ways in which bonus compensation metrics have changed from year to year in an apparent effort by the Cliffs Board to justify management bonuses despite severe underperformance. Casablanca reiterates that, in contrast to the current 0.3% of Cliffs shares that the current Board and management team owns, Casablanca has economically aligned itself with the interests of fellow shareholders, with Casablanca owning 5.2% of Cliffs shares and with Lourenco Goncalves’ personal investment of $1.5M in Cliffs’ shares. Donald Drapkin, Chairman of Casablanca said, “The Cliffs Board and management team have been pursuing their own personal agendas and enrichment at the expense of shareholders for far too long. It is time for the gravy train to end and for the Board to be held accountable. We are confident that on July 29 Cliffs’ shareholders will vote to support a slate of new directors who will reverse the outrageous value destruction and stop the pattern of excessive compensation and self-dealing at Cliffs.”
