Multi-year highs for iron ore

Air pollution in China reportedly caused supply disruptions.

And the spot price of iron ore has blazed higher to its strongest point since the middle of October 2014.

The daily spot price of Australia's most valuable export commodity was up 3.9 per cent to $83.65/tonne.
