Coal shipments 2015 (external sales -third party and internal sales at market price)

Total: 2.8
External sales - Third party 1.5
Internal sales at market price 1.3

There are three categories of sales:

1) “External sales”: mined product sold to third parties at market price;

2) “Market-priced tonnes”: internal sales of mined product to ArcelorMittal facilities and reported at prevailing market prices;

3) “Cost-plus tonnes” - internal sales of mined product to ArcelorMittal facilities on a cost-plus basis. The determinant of whether internal sales are reported at market price or cost-plus is whether the raw material could practically be sold to third parties (i.e. there is a potential market for the product and logistics exist to access that market).
