BHP's Escondida, the world's largest copper mine, said on Tuesday it had dropped plans to continue drawing water from the Atacama salt flat, relieving pressure on the parched desert basin, home to top lithium miners SQM and Albemarle. BHP has long pumped water from Atacama's aquifers to feed operations at its sprawling Escondida mine. The global miner said in a statement Tuesday it would now substitute its pumping from Atacama with desalinated water from its coastal Chilean plants.
Chilean miner Antofagasta Plc on Wednesday reported a 5.8% drop in fourth-quarter copper production, plagued by supply and transportation disruptions because of civil unrest in Chile that started in October last year.

Two weeks ago, Antofagasta said the protests could cut its production for the year by about 5,000 tonnes, equivalent to less than 3% of third quarter output, due to delays in supplies and travel disruptions for workers. The London-listed miner said it now expects annual copper production of 750,000 to 770,000 tonnes compared with a prior forecast of 750,000 to 790,000 tonnes. The revised forecast also includes a loss of about 4,000 tonnes from worker strikes at its Antucoya mine that Antofagasta said have ended.
Glencore on Friday reported a 4% drop in copper output so far this year and trimmed full-year guidance as it prepared to suspend some operations in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Production of battery mineral cobalt rose 21%, a third-quarter production report said, as the company increased output at its Katanga copper and cobalt mine, also in Congo. As part of the company's efforts to overcome problems in the politically volatile African state, Glencore in August laid out plans to separate its African copper business from its wider copper operations and halt production at its Mutanda copper and cobalt mine at the end of this year.
Chile's state miner Codelco, the world's top copper producer, said on Wednesday one of its mines was shut and operations at a smelter drastically reduced amid a general strike as protests and chaos have rocked the South American nation. Six of Codelco's eight divisions were carrying on with the "majority of their operations," the company said in a statement. The Copper Workers Federation (FTC), which includes unionized workers from each of Codelco's divisions, agreed late on Tuesday to join the general, nation-wide strike along with other sectors, including teachers and public employees.
The company, whose flagship mine Los Pelambres is 240 km north-east of Chilean capital Santiago, said the unrest could lead to problems with delivering supplies and employees to site and could hit output to the tune of about 5,000 tonnes. The capital of the country has seen thousands of people holding successive, peaceful demonstrations this week, demanding an end to low wages and a high cost of living. Antofagasta, which operates four mines in the South American country, reported third-quarter production of 197,000 tonnes, up from 188,300 tonnes in the year-ago period, but 0.8% lower than the previous quarter.
Copper producer Antofagasta Plc said on Wednesday protests in Chile could cut its production by about 5,000 tonnes, equivalent to less than 3% of third quarter output, due to delays in supplies and travel disruptions for workers. The London-listed miner, which has four mines in Chile and employs about 19,000 people, kept its annual forecast unchanged at 750,000-790,000 tonnes of copper this year but said 2020 output would be lower at 725,000-755,000 tonnes. Antofagasta produced 197,000 tonnes of copper in the third quarter, 0.8% lower than the previous three months but up on the 188,300 tonnes produced a year earlier.
Chile´s mining industry was running as normal despite the violent protests that have rocked the capital, Santiago, and other cities across the world´s top copper producer, Mining Minister Baldo Prokurica said on Sunday. The protests over an increase in public transport costs prompted President Sebastian Pinera to reverse the fare hikes and declare a state of emergency. Prokurica told Reuters in an email that all of the country´s mines, including those owned by the world´s top copper producer, Codelco, were operating normally.
Chile's Antofagasta , one of the world's largest copper producers, has requested government mediation to resolve a contractual dispute with supervisors at its flagship Los Pelambres mine, the supervisors´ union said on Monday. The workers voted by a majority to go on strike after rejecting a salary adjustment offer from the company and amid opposition to a flexible working hours plan. If you want to have people working 24/7, you have to pay overtime accordingly," Felipe Franco, head of the union of 271 members, told Reuters.
Chile's Antofagasta , one of the world's top copper miners, negotiated on Thursday with workers in hopes of staving off a strike at its small Antucoya deposit in northern Chile, though union leaders said there had been little progress in discussions. The government-mediated negotiations follow the union's decision to reject Antofagasta Plc's final contract offer, raising the specter of a strike.
