Eurasian Natural Resources Corporation said Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Works had breached a contract to purchase 1 million tons of its iron ore a month and it will seek compensation from the Russian company, a London-based miner of the commodity in Kazakhstan, said Thursday.

Magnitogorsk has indicated that it will buy a maximum of 700,000 tons of ore a month in the fourth quarter, ENRC said.
