    BHP cuts 2018 iron ore forecast, cites rail car upload problems

    BHP Billiton Ltd cut its 2018 fiscal year iron ore output guidance on Thursday citing issues in its railroad car unloading system, while also slightly raising its copper output expectations given higher production at the Escondida mine. A car dumper is a machine that unloads bulk cargoes from rail road cars. Overall, the outcome of the global miner's third quarter production was balanced as lower iron ore output and eased guidance should be broadly offset by a slight pick up in third quarter copper production and upgraded guidance, said Sydney-based brokerage Shaw and Partners in a report.

    [$$] BHP Trims Iron Ore, Olympic Dam Output Forecasts

    Ltd. (BHP.AU) said it would produce less iron ore than expected this fiscal year because of unplanned maintenance work, and also cut expectations for its Olympic Dam copper mine in Australia. BHP, the world’s top listed miner, on Thursday reported iron-ore production of 58 million metric tons for the three months through March, up 8% on-year but 6% lower than the quarter immediately prior. The company meantime lowered fiscal-year production guidance for its Olympic Dam mine in southern Australia to roughly 135,000 tons from 150,000 tons because of a slower-than-anticipated ramp up following maintenance work there.

    BHP cuts 2018 iron ore forecast, cites rail car upload problems

    The miner cut its fiscal 2018 production guidance to between 272-274 million tonnes of iron ore from 275-280 million tonnes. BHP, the world's biggest miner, said its copper production target was affected by a "slower than planned" ramp-up in production during the March quarter at its Olympic Dam facility in South Australia. BHP's iron ore output rose to 67 million tonnes in the three months ended March 31, compared with 62 million tonnes a year ago.

    BHP Billiton (BHP.AX)(BLT.L) is expanding its business as a supplier of battery minerals at its nickel refinery in Western Australia, planning to start producing nickel sulphate next year and looking at cobalt output as well, a company executive said.

After the DRC, Australia has the world's second-largest mineral reserves.

    Global miner BHP Billiton (BHP.AX) (BLT.L) said on Thursday it had made a final decision to leave the World Coal Association (WCA) over differences on climate change but would remain a member of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

    Why the unloved FTSE 100 is lagging rivals

    It is tempting to blame the FTSE-100's lurch into correction territory simply on concerns over trade wars between the US and China. After all, all of the Footsie's European peers have also fallen sharply since it became clear President Trump was going to slap tariffs on a number of Chinese imports, a measure to which Beijing has retaliated overnight. The UK's main index has on Friday hit a level last seen on 12 December 2016.
