Catherine Conlan at MinnPost tells us: none.
The Iron Range is the largest domestic source of iron ore in the United States and we are generating zip as of today. They're shipping some stockpiles, but that's it. Granted, iron ore demand is a lagging indicator not a leading indicator. But I don't think people on the Iron Range find much comfort in that fact. Let this be a reminder that we might be on the road to recovery but that the patch of highway up ahead is underwater and filled with alligators.
Alligators that like the cold and always take the last two beers at parties. I hate those alligators, don't you?
