By copper's standards it has been a remarkably smooth year for mine production, leaving analysts struggling to fill the customary collective allowance for disruption in their forecasts. There has been plenty of disruption, but it has taken place at the smelting-refining stage of the copper production chain, roiling the refined metal market and allowing smelters to feast on a rare abundance of raw materials. This dynamic looks set to change again next year, judging by the benchmark copper concentrate terms set by Chilean miner Antofagasta (Other OTC: ANFGF - news) and China's Jiangxi Copper (HKSE: 0358-OL.HK - news) .
SolGold's (SOLG.L) coveted Ecuadorian copper-gold prospect may be 20 percent bigger than the mining group said earlier this week, its chief executive Nick Mather said on Thursday. SolGold, in which Mather has a near 5 percent stake, said on Tuesday that its Alpala project in Ecuador's Cascabel region was around double the size and grade quality it was known to be in December 2017. "We think there's still 20 percent to go," Mather said, adding he expected it to be around two years before work would start on building a mine at Alpala.
Mining giant BHP (BLT.L) (BHP.AX) says it will fight an unprecedented English lawsuit filed by hundreds of thousands of Brazilians for multi-billion pound damages over Brazil's worst environmental disaster. SPG Law, a British offshoot of a U.S. litigator, represents 240,000 individuals in Brazil, 24 municipal governments, a Roman Catholic Archdiocese and members of the Krenak indigenous community and has filed three legal claims for unlimited damages over the failure of the Fundao dam in 2015. London and Australian-listed BHP, the world's largest mining company by market value, said it had received correspondence from the law firm but also noted it had so far committed $780 million to the Renova Foundation, an entity created by the miner and its partners to manage reparations and repairs.

BHP (BHP.AX) on Monday said it had signed an agreement with Australia's tax authorities to settle a long-running dispute over the global miner's operations in Singapore. The settlement removes a thorn from the side of BHP which alongside fellow miner Rio Tinto (RIO.L) (RIO.AX) was accused of not paying its fair share of tax as governments cracked down on multinationals in the wake of the global financial crisis. Tax authorities had been in dispute with both firms over the amount of Australian tax payable from sales of Australian commodities to their Singapore marketing businesses.
LONDON/MILAN, Nov 15 (Reuters) - British shares suffered and sterling tumbled on Thursday as the growing risk of a disorderly divorce from the European Union spooked investors, with leading index the FTSE 100 moving for most of the day in rare lockstep with the domestic currency. The FTSE 100 eventually ended broadly flat, reversing the session's earlier 0.8 percent fall, which came even as sterling dived after high-profile resignations thrust Prime Minister Theresa May's government into turmoil, just a day after she clinched a draft Brexit deal.

Britain's top stock index fell on Wednesday as mining shares and oil majors sold off amid growing anxiety that global growth was slowing, though a late rally in gambling stocks offset some of the slide. The FTSE 100 (.FTSE) ended 0.3 percent lower after a choppy day, with investors navigating a commodities selloff and nerves over Brexit as Prime Minister May tried to persuade her cabinet to back her draft EU divorce plan. "Markets are struggling to discount two binary options: a Brexit which is relatively soft and pushed down the road, or a dramatic no-deal result," said Edward Park, investment director at Brooks Macdonald.
