The company cited "considerable market uncertainty with the outcome of current international trade negotiations unclear," although it said the longer term prospects for copper were favourable.

On nights lit by a full moon, thieves leap from trucks onto trains as they roll through Chile’s Atacama Desert, before throwing 80-kilo (180-pound) slabs of copper to the ground and disappearing into the dark.

About 40 incidents were reported in the first half of this year, according to the prosecutor’s office in Antofagasta, up from just six in all of 2014.

Minnesota outdoor recreation firms have sued the federal government over its decision to reinstate leases for a mine next to a state wilderness as part of the Trump administration's drive to allow mining in some of the country's wildest areas.

Plaintiffs included outdoor equipment stores, a resort and Northeastern Minnesotans for Wilderness, a group created to protect the area known as the Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA).
