Global diamond giant De Beers is rolling out an app to help small-scale, artisanal diamond miners in Sierra Leone certify that gems they pry from the soil are legal, the Anglo American unit said on Thursday. The initiative is the latest attempt by the industry to clean up its image and expunge the scourge of "blood diamonds" blamed for financing conflict, chaos and criminality in poor African countries, such as Sierra Leone and Liberia. More widely, small-scale mining is often tainted by alleged links to insurgents or child labour, casting a cloud over supply chains for commodities such as cobalt, which is produced mainly in the conflict-prone Democratic Republic of Congo, and gold.

Anglo American Platinum (AMSJ.J) said on Wednesday it had invested an unspecified amount in High-Yield Energy Technologies (HyET), a Dutch technology company, as part of its drive to promote fuel cell vehicles which require platinum catalysts. A global push for lower-emission transport raises the prospect of weaker demand for platinum, whose biggest industrial use is in diesel vehicles. Other big miners are positioning themselves for the shift from the combustion engine by betting on lithium and cobalt used in electric vehicle batteries.
Two leaks in a month, a 90-day outage and $58 million (£40.4 million) in fines is not enough to temper Anglo American's (AAL.L) 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.
Chilean miner Collahuasi said on Tuesday it expected to slash production costs to under $1 per pound of copper this year as it boosts output and uses efficiency measures to optimize operations. Collahuasi, owned by Anglo American Plc and Glencore Plc, is a copper mine located in northern Chile and is among the world´s largest.

The eastern limb of South Africa's platinum belt has been hit by over 400 incidents of social unrest impacting mining operations since the start of 2016, according to data compiled by Anglo American Platinum (Amplats) and provided to Reuters. The restive region in the country's northeast has been a flashpoint of violence rooted in community grievances over jobs, revenue flows and conflict between rival unions that threatens production in the world's top producer of the precious metal.
Anglo American Plc is looking past global trade tensions and local political upheaval as it moves toward a multibillion-dollar decision on building the world’s next major copper mine, in Peru.
Debswana, a joint venture between the Botswana government and De Beers, plans to expand its Jwaneng Mine extending its lifespan by eleven years to extract a further 50 million carats. If approved by Botswana environmental authorities, the project will deepen the mine to 855 metres from 650 metres, the company said in a regulatory environmental impact assessment notice. Debswana managing director Balisi Bonyongo told Reuters on March 27, 2018 that feasibility studies for Cut 9 will be completed before the end of the year which will inform the amount of funds required for the project.
Britain's FTSE 100 managed a small gain on Wednesday despite global trade worries denting appetite for risky assets, as investors piled into defensive sectors which make up a large part of the UK index. The blue-chip FTSE 100 (.FTSE) closed 0.1 percent higher, while mid-caps (.FTMC) fell 0.7 percent. Worries over global trade have weighed on stocks over the past month, with the Trump administration set to unveil a list of Chinese advanced technology imports targeted for U.S. tariffs to punish Beijing over technology transfer policies.
Anglo halted operations after a leak was discovered on March 29 on a pipeline which carries iron ore in slurry form from the mine to an export terminal. It said the leak of non-hazardous iron ore slurry was stopped within eight minutes and caused no disruption to local water supply. A previous leak prompted Anglo to suspend operations from March 12 to 27 at Minas-Rio, which transports iron ore from the company's mine and processing facility in the state of Minas Gerais to a port in the state of Rio de Janeiro.

Brazilian environmental regulators ordered miner Anglo American Plc (AAL.L) to halt operations in the country following a pipeline leak. Anglo American had previously suspended mining operations in its Minas-Rio system in Brazil, which transports iron ore from the company's mine and processing facility in the state of Minas Gerais to a port in the state of Rio de Janeiro, between March 12 and March 27 following a previous leak. "The event led the company to paralyse the process of resuming iron ore transportation," Anglo American said in a statement.

Britain's top share index rebounded from its lowest level in more than a year on Tuesday as risk assets breathed a sigh of relief on signs that a global trade war could be averted. The blue-chip FTSE 100 (.FTSE) closed 1.5 percent up at 6,994.85 points, with almost every constituent in positive territory. A weak pound typically supports the FTSE by giving an accounting boost to UK blue-chips companies that have revenue in dollars.
Until this week, Martin Vizcarra led a quiet life as Peru's ambassador to Canada, overseeing the two nations' friendly relations from Ottawa, the Canadian capital. Vizcarra, 55, was sworn in as president of the Andean nation of 32 million people on Friday, promising to fight corruption "at any cost" and calling on lawmakers to end the acrimonious disputes that accompanied Kuczynski's downfall in one of region's most stable economies. A tall and lanky civil engineer married to a schoolteacher, Vizcarra plunged into politics after seeing his native Moquegua, a small mining region in southern Peru, languish under corrupt local leaders and neglect from policymakers in Lima, the capital.

British shares gave up early gains and finished in negative territory on Wednesday as points gained by Prudential and mining stocks were overturned by simmering fears of a global trade war that pushed Wall Street into the red. The blue chip FTSE 100 (.FTSE) index closed down 0.09 percent at 7,132.69 points, slightly above the pan-European STOXX 600 (.STOXX), down 0.15 percent while the Dow Jones Industrial Average (.DJI) was losing about 1 percent at the same time. "The positive mood in Europe has waned after U.S. markets turned lower," David Madden from CMC Markets said.
Anglo American (AAL.L) on Tuesday announced new goals to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 30 percent, improve energy efficiency by 30 percent and cut freshwater withdrawal by 50 percent in arid regions, all by 2030. Previous 2020 goals included an energy savings target of 8 percent and a goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 21 percent, while cutting freshwater withdrawal by 20 percent. The way the targets are calculated also changes as the previous energy and greenhouse gas goals were calculated versus business as usual, while the 2030 goals seek an improvement in energy efficiency per tonne of copper equivalent mined and an absolute cut in greenhouse gas emissions.

Global diversified mining company Anglo American Plc halted iron ore production at its mine in Brazil's Minas Gerais state after a mineral duct used to transport the product to an export terminal broke down, the company said in a statement on Monday. Anglo said there was leakage of a mixture of iron ore and water to a local watershed. It asked the local water company to stop using that water to supply residents and it is paying for water trucks to serve the local population for now.
