Speaking to reporters, Young said Aberdeen was in "very close contact with Elliott", despite Elliott holding "slightly shorter" investment horizons than Aberdeen.

    Brazil resumes murder trial in Samarco mining disaster

    A court in Brazil decided on Monday to resume criminal proceedings, including consideration of murder charges, related to the 2015 Samarco mine disaster, throwing out a challenge from two defendants claiming that evidence was illegally collected. Vale SA and BHP Billiton Ltd, joint owners of the Samarco iron mine, are part of a group that includes 22 people and two other companies that stand accused of crimes related to a tailing dam that burst. The judge ruled certain material based on transcripts of corporate emails and chats to be invalid but that it did not impact the validity of telephone surveillance and other evidence, federal prosecutors said in a statement.

    LMEWEEK-BHP turns to drill bit to meet electric car copper consumption

    Exploration not acquisition is the best way for BHP to meet any rise in copper demand from electric vehicles, a top official at the world's biggest miner said. The copper sector faces huge challenges as the ore quality in existing mines deteriorates, while electric vehicles will require high volumes of the metal, Danny Malchuk, president of operations at BHP's Minerals Americas, said. Exploration budgets collapsed during the commodity crash which ended in early 2016.

    BHP, Vale get short extension on Brazil mine disaster settlement

    BHP Billiton (BHP.AX) (BLT.L) and Vale SA (VALE5.SA) have been granted an extension until Nov. 16 by a Brazilian court to negotiate a settlement on a $47 billion (35.59 billion pounds) claim stemming from the Samarco mine disaster in 2015, BHP said on Tuesday. Brazilian federal prosecutors in May last year served the joint partners in the Samarco iron ore mine with a 155 billion Brazilian real claim to pay for the social, environmental and economic costs of cleaning up the country’s worst environmental disaster. A settlement date of Oct. 30 was set by the court earlier this year after the parties failed to reach an agreement by a previous deadline of June 30.
