``Customer and iron ore sector analysis indicates a slowdown in demand for iron ore in China due to current economic uncertainty and the tightening of credit facilities,''

Cash prices of iron ore imported by China fell by a record 17 percent to 1,000 yuan ($147) a ton in the week ending Sept. 29 at Beilun port, according to data from Beijing Antaike Information Development Co. Benchmark contract prices were settled this year at $144.66 a ton.
