    BHP presents united front against activist Elliott

    The new chairman of BHP (BLT.L) (BHP.AX), the world's biggest miner, threw his weight behind his CEO on Thursday after attacks from activist investor Elliott Advisors prompted speculation that the end of Andrew Mackenzie's tenure was imminent. Pressure has mounted on BHP and its chief executive since Elliott went public in April with its criticisms of the miner's strategy. "Any suggestion there is a set timeline around Andrew's tenure is simply false and without merit," Chairman Ken MacKenzie told reporters after his first AGM since taking office at the start of September.

    BHP expects China's growth to ease modestly over short term - CEO​

    "As we watch the outcomes of the Chinese Party Congress with interest, we expect growth in China to ease modestly over the short-term, as monetary policy tightens and housing and automotive markets soften," Mackenzie said. Uncertainty over China’s demand for imported ore as its steel industry undergoes structural change and speculative trading in contracts has seen prices this year swing between $53 and $95 a tonne. "Over the long term, we believe fiscal policy and infrastructure investment will be conducive to growth, especially with the Belt and Road Initiative and rich in opportunity for natural resources," Mackenzie said.

    Chile's Cochilco boosts copper forecast to near $3 per pound in 2018

    SANTIAGO, Oct (Shenzhen: 000069.SZ - news) 18 (Reuters) - Chile (Stuttgart: 704599.SG - news) state copper commission Cochilco forecasted on Wednesday an average global copper price of $2.95 per pound in 2018, a sharp upward revision from its mid-year estimate of $2.68, due to greater demand in China, a key market. For 2017, it predicted an average copper price of $2.77 per pound, markedly higher than its previous estimate of $2.64. Cochilco also forecasted Chile's copper output to fall 4 percent from 2016, to 5.27 million tonnes, due primarily to a 43-day strike at BHP Billiton Ltd's Escondida mine in Chile, the largest copper mine in the world, earlier this year.

    BHP Billiton on Track to Hit Copper, Iron Ore Production Records

    BHP Billiton (BHP.AU) is on track to hit production records in copper and iron ore this financial year.

Copper production rose 14% to 404,000 tonnes, in line with expectations, as the Los Colorados expansion project at Escondida started up.

    Copper miner explores standalone energy options in Australia

    Oz Minerals (OZL.AX) could build standalone renewable power plants to ensure uninterrupted electrical supplies to its copper mines, managing director Andrew Cole said on Tuesday, a move that would protect it from blackouts of the type seen last year. Cole said he was open to developing independent sources of energy - solar, wind and thermal - to mitigate the uncertainty in price and availability of electricity in South Australia state, which is notorious for sudden power outages. "We're certainly looking at those technologies for our current operations, our projects and future projects," Cole told Reuters.

    Rio Tinto iron ore shipments climb on rail upgrade, on track for annual target

    Global miner Rio Tinto on Tuesday said it had lifted its third quarter iron ore shipments by 6 percent after modernizing its haulage railway in Australia's outback, but cut its production target for copper due to delays at a major mine in Chile. Rio Tinto, which competes with Vale SA and BHP Billiton Ltd in the seaborne-traded iron ore market, maintained its target to ship 330 million tonnes of the steelmaking ingredient in 2017. The strong quarter comes after a sluggish first half when bad weather and rail track maintenance crimped iron ore production.
