The bid is being made by GFG Alliance, a group that includes Liberty House and resources and energy firm SIMEC Group, GFG Alliance said.

The assets being bid for include a 7 million tonnes-a-year iron ore pellet plant in Nashwauk, Minnesota that has the potential to produce up to 14 million tonnes a year, GFG Alliance said.

London-based Liberty said last week it agreed to buy the Georgetown Steelworks plant from Arcelor Mittal in its first major U.S. acquisition.
