Rio iron ore output falls: report

Miner expected to report weak Q2 output due to rain, conveyor problem.

Rio Tinto Ltd's West Australian iron ore production has been hit in the June quarter by unseasonal rain and a conveyer outage, raising questions whether the miner will be able to meet its full-year guidance, according to The Australian.

The issues led to weaker-than-expected shipments for Rio, but the weather issues have also hampered BHP Billiton Ltd and Fortescue Metals Group Ltd.
