BREAKFAST DEALS: All aboard Atlas

Atlas Iron and QR National investigate a Pilbara rail line for the little guys, while Spotless suggests a third way with PEP.

Atlas Iron and QR National could be about to change the balance of power in the Pilbara. Reports indicate that the pair is poised to announce a feasibility study into building a railway line for smaller miners, breaking the infrastructure stranglehold that the big three iron ore miners enjoy in the region. Spotless Group has apparently floated a third takeover idea to break talks with Pacific Equity Partners into something real. Elsewhere, Rio Tinto has become the subject of speculation about a UK-listed mineral sands miner, CVC Asia Pacific has received a dose of good news and bad news for its Nine Entertainment defence and Andrew Forrest is playing white knight with a small gold miner.
