    Australia trade minister says 'mobilised' on Treasury Wine issue

    Australia's trade minister, on a visit to Shanghai, said on Thursday he was "mobilised" to tackle customs delays facing Australia's Treasury Wine Estates Ltd (TWE.AX) in China, amid a recent souring in diplomatic relations. Starting a three-day visit, Steve Ciobo said a diplomatic team had been set up to sort out the customs issues that have hit the world's biggest listed winemaker and that trade ties between Australia and China remained strong.

    Biggest Miner Says China's Shift to Quality Iron Ore Will Hold

    BHP Billiton Ltd., the world’s biggest miner, forecasts reforms in China’s steel sector will continue to hand an advantage to suppliers of higher-quality iron ore and coking coal as consumption of the alloy keeps growing well into the next decade. Steel mills are likely to retain about two-thirds of the improvements in margins seen since a push began in China in late 2015 to reduce excess capacity and meet more stringent environmental standards, Chief Commercial Officer Arnoud Balhuizen said Monday in an interview with Bloomberg Television.

    BP Said to Tap Morgan Stanley as It Weighs Buying BHP Assets

    BP Plc is weighing an acquisition of some of BHP Billiton Ltd.’s energy assets as the British oil major seeks more U.S. shale, according to people familiar with the matter. The London-based company is working with Morgan Stanley to advise on the plans, said the people, asking not to be identified as the matter is private. BP is weighing teaming up with other suitors or swapping conventional assets -- where oil and gas typically flow more easily to the surface than shale -- with BHP, they said.

    Union at BHP's Escondida copper mine in Chile says no advance deal likely

    The union of workers at BHP's Escondida copper mine in Chile (Stuttgart: 704599.SG - news) , the world's largest, told Reuters on Tuesday it had made little progress on an early contract deal with management, making it "highly likely" that no agreement would be struck before official talks begin in June. The union accepted an offer to begin early negotiations with the Anglo-Australian miner in March in an effort to avoid another strike at the northern Chile mine. In a brief interview with Reuters, union spokesman Carlos Allendes said it was "highly likely" that talks would extend into June as the company had made only "marginal and insufficient" concessions to union proposals.

    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.

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

    FOCUS-After setbacks, Anglo American counting on turnaround for Minas-Rio mine

    Two leaks in a month, a 90-day outage and $58 million in fines is not enough to temper Anglo American (LSE: AAL.L - news) 's ambition for its long-delayed, multi-billion dollar Minas-Rio iron ore mine in Brazil. Purchased at the height of the commodities boom a decade ago for $5.5 billion, Anglo American was once counting on Minas-Rio to produce 26.5 million tonnes of iron ore by 2016. The mine's strength is its high-grade iron ore that commands a premium as the world's biggest commodity consumer China seeks to cut pollution.

    Embattled EPA chief's calendar shows industry had his ear

    U.S. Environmental Protection Agency head Scott Pruitt held 25-times more meetings with industry representatives than environmental advocates during his first seven months in office, according to a Reuters analysis of his schedule, reflecting the agency's pro-business approach under his tenure. The newly released records, obtained by the Environmental Integrity Project watchdog group through a Freedom of Information Act request, come as the White House probes ethics allegations against Pruitt. Pruitt, a vocal doubter of mainstream climate change science, has also faced criticism for frequent first-class air travel, spending on costly items in his office, including a $43,000 soundproof telephone booth, and for a trip to Morocco where he promoted U.S. exports of liquefied natural gas – something outside the remit of an environmental regulator.

    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. It said in December it had taken a preliminary decision to withdraw from the WCA, pending a full review. The miner came under pressure from Australian green groups last year to leave any industry associations with policies that fail to match the company's support of the 2015 Paris climate accord.
