    Australian mining's macho image worsens pain of labour shortage

    When the song "Eagle Rock" played at a bar in an outback Australian mining town of Kalgoorlie late one night, a dozen young men scattered around a pool table dropped their trousers and heartily sang along in their underwear. Later that night, they piled behind the counter of the bar attached to the Western Australian School of Mines (WASM), singing an anthem that began, "We are engineers," and finished with an obscene description of how they treat women. "If we could attract more women, it could go a long way to helping any future skills shortage," said Paul Cooper, regional chief executive of mining for recruiting company Sodexo, which is a key supplier to the industry and whose workforce is almost half women.

    BP: The Dividend and US Shale

    At the end of July, BP PLC (BP) announced it is acquiring the bulk of BHP Billiton's (BHP) U.S. shale oil and gas assets for $10.5 billion, increasing its land area by roughly half a million acres and helping it gain access to high-quality shale assets like Eagle Ford, Haynesville and the Permian Basin. The agreement comes two years after the company reached a settlement with the U.S. federal government and states around the Gulf of Mexico for the fatal accident at Deepwater Horizon. The 2010 disaster forced the company to sell off billions of dollars in assets and has cost more than $65 billion in clean up and legal fees to date.

    Top Miner Sees U.S.-China Trade Spat Limiting Global Growth

    Rising U.S.-China trade tensions threaten to curb consumer purchasing power, crimp productivity growth and limit global economic expansion, according to the world’s biggest mining company. The confrontation between the world’s top two economies, “along with an increasingly unpredictable policy formation process” in some nations, serves to reduce consumer confidence and business certainty, BHP Billiton Ltd. said Tuesday in its annual report. Protectionist policies and political uncertainty lower the achievable ceiling for global economic growth, it said.
