Chile's copper production from January to September this year jumped 7.3 percent from a year earlier, boosted by a sharp increase in production at BHP's Escondida copper mine. Chile, the world's top copper exporter, produced 4.25 million tonnes of copper in the first nine months of 2018. Escondida, in northern Chile, produced 950,900 tonnes through September, up 57.8 percent from the same period in 2017, when a strike shut down the mine for more than 40 days.
Miner Anglo American (AAL.L) expects a pipeline that connects its troubled Minas Rio mine to the Brazilian port of Acu to be ready to receive iron ore from that project by the end of the month, according to a notice seen by Reuters. The company halted production at the mine after two leaks in March in the pipeline, which channels slurry more than 500 km (310 miles) from Minas Gerais state to the port in Rio de Janeiro state. "It is currently AAMFB's expectation to reach the operation readiness of the pipeline, including all the necessary authorization from the Public Authorities, by the end of November," according to the notice, sent to an Anglo service provider and signed by an executive at Anglo's Brazilian subsidiary Anglo American Minerio de Ferro Brasil (AAMFB).
The storied mining company, founded by Ernest Oppenheimer in Johannesburg a century ago, is devoting a third of its exploration budget to the continent, including searching for copper and cobalt in Angola and Zambia. In South Africa, it’s investing in platinum, diamond and iron-ore mines that are spitting out cash. The London-based company is betting that Africa can deliver a portfolio of new ore bodies, even as BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto Group largely shun the continent and focus on returning cash to shareholders.
South African President Cyril Ramaphosa declared himself in economic "repair mode" at a major investment conference on Friday as the country raised a total of $55 billion from investors to help haul itself out of recession. The former union leader, who inherited a mismanaged economy from the scandal-plagued Jacob Zuma earlier this year, wants $100 billion of new investments over the next five years. Investment commitments of almost 290 billion rand ($20 billion) were made at the conference, Ramaphosa said.

Disappointing trading updates from AMS and Atos, among others, and a cash call from Saab set a generally downbeat tone for corporate Europe on Tuesday.
Anglo American (AAL.L) on Tuesday reported lower diamond, coking coal and iron ore volumes in the third quarter, linked to planned outages, but its overall output rose 1 percent on the year, boosted by a 17-percent increase in copper production. Other major miners reporting this month - BHP (BHP.AX) (BLT.L) and Rio Tinto (RIO.AX) (RIO.L) - have signalled lower output in copper, a mineral expected to be in high demand from increased electrification. Anglo American said its copper production had been helped by an overall increase in productivity as each employee has been 5 percent more productive this year than in 2017.
(Bloomberg) -- Anglo American Plc will dig more platinum than expected this year, while diamond production from its De Beers business will be at the top end of its guidance range.
TORONTO/LONDON (Reuters) - Anglo American unit De Beers (AAL.L) is going after lucrative, but elusive high-tech markets in quantum computing, as it aims to expand its lab-grown diamond business beyond drilling and cutting. Element Six, De Beers' synthetic diamond arm, is building a $94 million factory in Portland, Oregon, an expansion that comes as scientists from Moscow to London push to develop diamonds for futuristic applications. Now coming of age after decades of experiments, technology called chemical vapour deposition, or CVD, offers a path to higher-quality, lower-cost production of synthetic diamonds and that opens the door to potential new computing markets.
KIGALI/LONDON (Reuters) - Rwanda's mining boss announced on Tuesday the world's first blockchain project to track tantalum from the pit-face to the refinery, part of a push to woo investors seeking a conflict-free source of minerals. The project is the work of Circulor, a British start-up specialised in blockchain, and Power Resources Group (PRG), which has mining and refining operations in Rwanda and Macedonia. Francis Gatare, chief executive of Rwanda's Mines, Petroleum and Gas Board, said it was vital for Rwanda to prove it was a conflict-free source of tantalum, used amongst other things in mobile phones, and other minerals.
Anglo American Plc should restart operations at its Brazilian Minas Rio iron ore mine in November or December and a planned ramp-up to 26.5 million tonnes per year is likely to be reached in 2021, the miner's Brazil chief said on Tuesday. The company halted production at the Minas Rio mine after two leaks in March in a pipeline that channels slurry more than 500 km (310 miles) from the mine in Minas Gerais state to a port in Rio de Janeiro state. It could be in November or December," the Brazil chief executive, Ruben Fernandes, told Reuters on the sidelines of a commodities conference in Rio de Janeiro.
Anglo American Plc should restart operations at its Brazilian Minas Rio iron ore mine in November or December but a planned ramp-up to 26.5 million tonnes per year is likely to be pushed back to 2021 from 2020 as previously expected, the miner's Brazil chief said on Tuesday.

KIGALI/LONDON, Oct 16 (Reuters) - Rwanda's mining boss on Tuesday announced the world's first blockchain project to track tantalum from the pit-face to the refinery, part of a push to reassure investors of its role as a conflict-free source of minerals.

Energy and mining stocks helped the FTSE 100 recover some of its losses on Tuesday, in a half-hearted bounce which left the index near its lowest in a month as Brexit negotiations and Italy's budget deficit continued to sap investors' appetite for risk. Britain's top stock index (.FTSE) ended the day where it began, up 0.1 percent after a volatile session, with investors on tenterhooks as Italy's finance minister addressed parliament. A selloff in the previous session had taken the FTSE down to its lowest intraday level since September, and weakest close since April.

Resurgent fears of a protracted and costly trade war dented the FTSE 100 on Monday, while M&A stole the spotlight with Comcast finally clinching a takeover of Sky, and Randgold Resources agreeing a tie-up with Barrick Gold. Europe's largest pay-TV group Sky (SKYB.L) soared after Comcast's offer won an auction for the company with a $40 billion bid. Sky shares jumped 8.6 percent to 17.21 pounds, just below Comcast's cash offer of 17.28 pounds a share.
A slide in sterling after a speech by Prime Minister Theresa May helped boost Britain's exporter-heavy FTSE 100 to a 2 1/2 week high, cementing a three-day rally driven by banks, miners and oil stocks as investors' fears of a trade war faded. On the corporate front, Just Eat shares tumbled as Uber's reported advances to Deliveroo triggered fears of rising competition in the food delivery industry. The FTSE 100 (.FTSE) ended the day up 1.7 percent, extending early gains as developments on the Brexit front sank sterling, supporting the index whose constituents mainly earn outside the UK.
Britain's top share index extended its rally on Wednesday to hit a near two-week high as investors focussed on hopes a U.S.-China trade war was losing intensity. Brexit developments also kept the FTSE 100 in the thrall of currency moves on Wednesday, with inflation figures also driving swings in the index whose constituents derive most of their earnings from abroad. An unexpected jump in UK inflation boosted sterling in the morning, sending the FTSE 100 into the red.
The FTSE 100 (.FTSE) ended the day down 0.03 percent, while mid-caps (.FTMC) rose 0.4 percent, tracking higher European markets after Washington decided to slap 10 percent tariffs on another $200 billion of Chinese goods, and Beijing retaliated. Beijing's retaliation was less harsh than feared and caused just a temporary blip in stock markets which recovered fast. The FTSE 100 remains down 5.1 percent so far this year, however, as a recovery in sterling on growing expectations of a Brexit deal has weighed on the exporter-heavy index.
