    The reason apparently is that China relies on 1920’s style shaft mining, which must go deeper and deeper each passing year. A significant amount of its iron ore is mined the same way, even as numerous competitors have strip mines and higher grade ore.

    This makes China no more competitive or wise a capital investor in basic industry than — Ukraine?
