ArcelorMittal (MT +0.2%) says contractors working on an expansion project in Liberia had started moving personnel out of the country due to the Ebola virus outbreak in west Africa.

MT is working on an expansion project to increase iron ore shipments from Yekepa and Buchanan to 15M tons/year from 5M currently.

The steel producer says it remains committed to Liberia, and would continue to ship iron ore from the country.
