A combined Murchison metals - Midwest group would have the potential to produce 45 million tonnes of iron ore a year. The would place output at the same level as Fortescue's initial production --- though the Pilbara miner has far greater ambitions.

Murchison is backed by Japan's Mitsubishi Corp and South Korea's POSCO, while Midwest is backed by China's Sinosteel Corp.

Other iron ore players in the mid-west including Gindalbie Metals Ltd, which is backed by Chinese steelmaker Anshan Iron & Steel Group Corp, and Mt Gibson Iron Ltd, which is also backed by Chinese interests. Those companies also enjoyed share price gains on hopes the tussle over infrastructure will be resolved.
