    SolGold CEO excited by prospects for Ecuadorian copper-gold

    SolGold's (SOLG.L) coveted Ecuadorian copper-gold prospect may be 20 percent bigger than the mining group said earlier this week, its chief executive Nick Mather said on Thursday. SolGold, in which Mather has a near 5 percent stake, said on Tuesday that its Alpala project in Ecuador's Cascabel region was around double the size and grade quality it was known to be in December 2017. "We think there's still 20 percent to go," Mather said, adding he expected it to be around two years before work would start on building a mine at Alpala.

    BHP prepares for UK legal battle over 2015 Brazil dam failure

    Mining giant BHP (BLT.L) (BHP.AX) says it will fight an unprecedented English lawsuit filed by hundreds of thousands of Brazilians for multi-billion pound damages over Brazil's worst environmental disaster. SPG Law, a British offshoot of a U.S. litigator, represents 240,000 individuals in Brazil, 24 municipal governments, a Roman Catholic Archdiocese and members of the Krenak indigenous community and has filed three legal claims for unlimited damages over the failure of the Fundao dam in 2015. London and Australian-listed BHP, the world's largest mining company by market value, said it had received correspondence from the law firm but also noted it had so far committed $780 million to the Renova Foundation, an entity created by the miner and its partners to manage reparations and repairs.

    Miner BHP to pay $390 million in Australian tax dispute over Singapore hub

    BHP (BHP.AX) on Monday said it had signed an agreement with Australia's tax authorities to settle a long-running dispute over the global miner's operations in Singapore. The settlement removes a thorn from the side of BHP which alongside fellow miner Rio Tinto (RIO.L) (RIO.AX) was accused of not paying its fair share of tax as governments cracked down on multinationals in the wake of the global financial crisis. Tax authorities had been in dispute with both firms over the amount of Australian tax payable from sales of Australian commodities to their Singapore marketing businesses.

    Commodities drag FTSE down, Debenhams suffers worst-ever day

    Britain's top stock index fell on Wednesday as mining shares and oil majors sold off amid growing anxiety that global growth was slowing, though a late rally in gambling stocks offset some of the slide. The FTSE 100 (.FTSE) ended 0.3 percent lower after a choppy day, with investors navigating a commodities selloff and nerves over Brexit as Prime Minister May tried to persuade her cabinet to back her draft EU divorce plan. "Markets are struggling to discount two binary options: a Brexit which is relatively soft and pushed down the road, or a dramatic no-deal result," said Edward Park, investment director at Brooks Macdonald.

    BHP to meet iron ore commitments despite train derailment: CEO

    Global miner BHP Billiton will meet its iron ore commitments to customers despite a supply disruption after it had to derail a runaway ore train in Western Australia, Chief Executive Andrew Mackenzie said on Thursday. The miner suspended its rail operations after the incident on Monday that wrecked track and left a locomotive and wagons upturned nearly 120 km (75 miles) south of Australia's iron ore export hub of Port Hedland. Asked whether BHP would invoke force majeure, Mackenzie told media after the company's annual general meeting in South Australia that he did not expect the miner would let down any of its customers.
