Glencore has started a new copper concentrates blending facility in Taiwan to mix clean material with ores containing high levels of arsenic, three sources familiar with the matter said. The blending of concentrates containing high levels of impurities such as hazardous arsenic is aimed at making the material fit for shipment to China, the world's biggest importer of copper concentrates. China's legal import limit is arsenic under 0.5% in copper concentrates.
If you're looking for retirement income from the FTSE 100 (INDEXFTSE: UKX), I reckon we could be in one of the best times ever.
The FTSE 100 company reduced its annual forecast for net cash cost, a measure of cost of production per pound of copper produced, to $1.25 per pound as it expects to benefit from a weaker Chilean peso and higher by-product prices. Antofagasta, which is majority-owned by Chile's Luksic family, primarily mines copper with by-products of gold, molybdenum and silver. The company said copper production for the quarter was 198,600 tonnes compared with 163,200 tonnes, a year earlier and maintained its full-year copper production forecast of 750-790,000 tonnes.
China's copper smelters have just slashed their minimum charges for converting concentrates into refined metal. The 10-member China Smelters Purchase Team (CSPT) has set treatment and refining charges at $55.00 per tonne and 5.5 cents per lb respectively for third-quarter deliveries. Tumbling treatment charges reflect a tightening market for copper raw material.
European markets nudged higher on Monday as investors shrugged off news that China’s GDP growth has fallen to a 27-year low.
London's FTSE 100 clawed back some ground on Monday, ending its longest losing streak in three-and-a-half years as Chinese data eased investor concerns over a global growth slowdown. After seven sessions of losses, the FTSE 100 rose 0.3%, with miner Antofagasta surging after a favourable arbitration verdict. The data from China showed industrial output and retail sales comfortably topping forecasts, but economic growth slowed to its weakest pace in at least 27 years.
Pakistan said on Sunday it welcomed a statement by Tethyan Copper expressing willingness for a negotiated settlement after a World Bank tribunal ordered the government to pay $5.8 billion in damages in a dispute over the Reko Diq copper mine. The statement from the attorney general's office came after a World Bank arbitration court ruled in favour of Tethyan Copper, a joint venture between Chile's Antofagasta Plc and Canada's Barrick Gold, in a dispute over a lease to the mine, located in a remote area of southwestern Pakistan. The government said it was disappointed by the ruling but had taken note of a statement from Tethyan Copper's chairman expressing willingness to seek a negotiated settlement.
Chilean copper miner Antofagasta Plc said on Tuesday it would ask regulators for more time to answer questions about an environmental impact study for its Zaldivar mine, which draws water from Chile's lithium-rich Atacama salt flat. Chilean regulators last year delayed their review of Zaldivar's environmental study amid rising concerns over dwindling water supplies at Atacama. The Atacama salt flat is home to lithium miners SQM and Albemarle Corp, which together produce one-third of the world's supply of the ultralight battery metal.
Mining stocks led London's main index higher on Tuesday after Beijing took steps to increase local government spending and boost China's economy, while fashion retailer Ted Baker slumped after a profit warning. Rio Tinto, Antofagasta, Glencore and BHP were 2.5-3% higher, while oil majors BP and Shell were lifted by a rise in crude oil prices on expectations that OPEC and its allies will keep withholding supply. Troubles on Britain's high street were reflected on the small- and mid-cap indexes, with Ted Baker falling nearly one-third to a 6-1/2 year low after warning profits would come in well below analysts' expectations, and fast-fashion retailer Quiz down 23.2% after reporting a 94% slump in underlying pretax profit.

A trade war between the United States and China is depressing the price of copper and the red metal would be 5% to 15% higher without the dispute, the chairman for Chile's Antofagasta Plc told a Chilean newspaper on Sunday. "Without the commercial war, I am convinced that the price of copper would be between $3.20 and $3.50 per pound," Jean-Paul Luksic said in an interview with El Mercurio. The bruising trade war, which has slowed the global economy, is clouding the outlook for demand from top metals consumer China.

The FTSE 100 and the FTSE 250 lost 0.6 percent each. Sainsbury's tumbled 4.7 percent to a near three-year low after the supermarket chain scrapped its proposed 7.3 billion pound takeover of Walmart-owned Asda after the deal was blocked by Britain's competition regulator. "The failure of securing a merger with Asda leaves the group in a bit of a vacuum, with leadership and strategic uncertainties the byproduct of the CMA's rebuttal," Jefferies analysts said.
Antofagasta said on Wednesday production in the quarter was bolstered by better quality ore and higher output, mainly at its Centinela mine, and kept its annual output forecast of 750,000-790,000 tonnes unchanged. The FTSE 100 company, majority-owned by Chile's Luksic family, said production in the first quarter of 2019 rose to 188,600 tonnes from 153,800 tonnes a year earlier. Total copper production at Centinela was 68,800 tonnes, 45.5 percent higher than 2018.

Chilean miner Antofagasta Plc will retain its dividend policy of paying out at least 35 percent of underlying net earnings but will pay out excess funds from the proceeds of sales to shareholders, its chief executive said. "If you look at the last three or four years, we have been distributing close to around 50 percent of net earnings.
Despite these challenges, the industry is planning for substantial growth in the next decade thanks to an expected boom in production of electric vehicles, which use twice as much copper as internal combustion engines. Meanwhile, global visible inventory in the form of combined stocks held by the London Metal Exchange, Comex and the Shanghai Futures Exchange have nearly halved from a year ago to around 500,000 tonnes, data from the exchanges show.
