    The Global Diamond Glut Worsens

    Sales by the Anglo American Plc unit dropped 25% from a year ago to $415 million, and were down 29% from an offering last month. It’s often a quieter time of the year because the industry has already restocked after the key holiday period, but total sales so far in 2019 are still much weaker than in previous years. In December, some of Rio Tinto Group’s customers refused to buy cheaper stones, while De Beers was forced to cut prices toward the end of last year and offer concessions to buyers.

    BHP to keep Nickel West, Rio looks to Jadar lithium for battery boom

    Global miner BHP will hold on to the Australian nickel operations it previously put up for sale, while Rio Tinto is working on copper and lithium projects as the mining industry bets on demand for electric vehicle (EV) batteries. The biggest mining companies say they are well positioned to provide the metals needed for the shift to EV technology, although they acknowledge the political risks and environmental issues in some of the countries where the best supplies are found.

    Norsk Hydro looks to master magnetism to keep carbon promise

    KARMOEY, Norway/LONDON (Reuters) - In the cavernous chamber of Norsk Hydro's aluminium smelter on the Norwegian island of Karmoey, the magnetic forces are so strong they make heavy iron wrenches float out of the hands of workers. The company is piloting a technology that tames the effects of that powerful magnetic field, which is a consequence of the electrolysis process to make aluminium and leaches away energy. Norsk Hydro told Reuters it was using mathematical models to mitigate the effect of the magnetism and other energy waste.

    Rio Tinto shipping more aluminium to Europe as U.S. demand slows

    Rio Tinto has begun shipping more aluminium to markets like Europe to offset slowing demand from the United States partly caused by the trade dispute between China and the U.S., Chief Executive Jean-Sébastien Jacques said on Thursday. Jacques said that demand for Rio Tinto's products had not been impacted by the dispute, which is threatening to escalate this week. An agreement could avert a sharp increase in U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods that President Donald Trump has threatened to impose on Friday.

    Big Four miners languish amid demand, ESG, capex concerns

    The world's biggest diversified miners have yet to see their share prices reflect their role as providers of the minerals needed for a shift to a low-carbon economy. Mining companies provide minerals such as cobalt used in electric vehicle batteries and copper for increased electrification, and the sector's balance sheets are in rude health. Reminders of the dangers include a disaster in Brazil at a Vale tailings dam in January that killed an estimated 300 people, and a U.S. corruption investigation into Glencore, announced in April.
