    Chile copper export revenue at 4-yr high but trade surplus shrinks

    (Adds lithium exports and background) SANTIAGO, June 7 (Reuters) - Chilean copper export revenue hit its highest level in four years as crunch wage negotiations with workers at the country's biggest mine sent prices to a 2018 high, central bank data showed on Thursday. Even so, the world's leading copper producer's trade surplus fell by more than 30 percent to $679 million in May from $983 million in April. Analysts attributed the drop to firmer import revenue due to high fuel prices and rebounding investment given the new business-friendly government, while export revenues increased at a lower rate.

    Chile high court declines to weigh in on lithium spat at Maricunga

    Chile's constitutional court said it would not get involved in a dispute between a foreign-backed miner and state-run copper miner Codelco over adjoining lithium deposits in the Maricunga salt flat, according to a court document seen by Reuters on Wednesday. Salar Blanco, 50 percent-owned by Australia's Lithium Power International, with smaller stakes held by Canada's Bearing Lithium, filed suit in March before the court alleging that Codelco was constitutionally barred from mining lithium. In an accompanying lawsuit before a lower court that has not yet issued a ruling, Salar Blanco also argued that Codelco's permit overlapped its own and was issued in error.

    The Lithium Cartel Should Be Stopped

    Less than a year after BHP Billiton Ltd. announced plans to merge its iron ore operations with those of Rio Tinto Group in 2009, the proposal was dropped amid expectations that regulators in Europe and Asia would oppose the deal on antitrust grounds. Tianqi Lithium Corp. will pay $4.1 billion to buy Nutrien Ltd.’s 24 percent stake in Soc. Here’s how the lithium carbonate market is structured at present: North Carolina-based Albemarle Corp. is the market leader, with an 18 percent share, followed by Jiangxi Ganfeng Lithium Co. on 17 percent; SQM on 14 percent; and Tianqi on 12 percent.
