3 Biggest ASX Iron Companies in 2022

Like many industries, the mining industry was impacted by the pandemic, but for iron ore, the effect was slightly different.

Since 2016 the price of iron had been on a slow steady rise; however, in the spring and early summer of 2021, iron ore spiked to a high of AU$294.03. This lasted only a short while as prices plummeted to AU$131.97 in the latter half of 2021.
