    Leaner Anglo boosts earnings, but miner's share rally stalls

    Anglo American (AAL.L) said on Thursday annual earnings rose 45 percent and net debt halved as the miner rebounded from a commodities slump and said it had become a fundamentally different business focused on productivity. All the major miners have reported a recovery from the 2015-16 crash in commodities prices, announcing increased returns for shareholders and lower debt, while promising to avoid the spending sprees that piled on supplies and helped to end the last boom. Anglo American and Glencore (GLEN.L), which on Wednesday said its results were the strongest yet, saw their shares fall the furthest in the downturn and have rallied the most as commodity markets have recovered.

    Earnings and ex-divs blight Britain's FTSE; Barclays a bright spot

    Disappointing results, big stocks going ex-dividend and concerns over rising bond yields hit Britain's top share index on Thursday, pulling it to a one-week low. Britain's blue chip FTSE 100 (.FTSE) index had declined 1 percent to 7,210.67 points by 1001 GMT, while mid caps (.FTMC) fell 0.7 percent. Shares in British American Tobacco (BATS.L) were the biggest fallers, down 4.5 percent after the cigarette maker reported weaker-than-expected sales growth for 2017.

    Southern Copper wins tender for Peru's Michiquillay mine

    Southern Copper Corp won a tender to develop Peru's estimated $2 billion Michiquillay copper mine in an auction that attracted just two bidders, the government's Proinversion investment agency said on Tuesday. Southern, controlled by Grupo Mexico SAB de CV , won with a proposal to transfer $400 million to the government and pay 3 percent royalties, beating out Compania Minera Milpo, which had offered $250 million in transfers and 1.875 percent royalties. Peru is the world's second biggest copper producer after Chile.

    Peru will accept bids and award a contract to develop the estimated $2 billion Michiquillay copper mine on Tuesday in the first major auction from the world's No. 2 copper producer in at least a decade. The auction was delayed twice last year, in part due to political turmoil in Peru. The bids will be a gauge of investor confidence in President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, a former Wall Street banker who was nearly impeached in December.

    Amplats announces first dividend in seven years, plans no big projects this year

    Anglo American Platinum (Amplats) (AMSJ.J), the world's top platinum producer, announced its first dividend in seven years on Monday as full-year headline earnings more than doubled and said it was not committing capital to major projects in 2018. Amplats' investment stance highlights the fragile state of platinum mining in South Africa, home to around two-thirds of known reserves, where for years the industry has battled soaring costs, depressed prices, policy uncertainty and bouts of violent labour and social unrest. South Africa's Chamber of Mines said on Sunday it had agreed to postpone a court challenge against a new version of an industry charter, which among other things raises targets for black ownership, to allow for talks with newly sworn-in South African President Cyril Ramaphosa.

    Mining sector unloved as investors find it hard to trust

    Investors are shunning the mining sector, data from Thomson Reuters shows, as they struggle to forget the string of multi-billion dollar takeovers and expensive development projects that left them empty handed. The mining sector led the FTSE higher in 2016 as it rebounded from the previous year's deep price crash, but it is still well below levels seen in 2011.

    As mining investors push caution, Glencore differs from rivals

    TORONTO/MELBOURNE (Reuters) - As shareholders push the world's cash-rich miners to maintain lush dividends and make the most of existing assets, Glencore is taking a slightly different tactic that positions it for shrewd acquisitions. Like other big rivals, Glencore is expected to lift its dividend payout when it reports results next week, but the Swiss miner and trader is also "open for business" when it comes to buying mines or companies, its chief financial officer said in December. "Glencore's deal-making is now very strategic.

    De Beers Namibia diamond venture puts mine up for sale

    Namdeb, a 50/50 joint venture between the Namibian government and Anglo American's (AAL.L) diamond unit De Beers, has put the Elizabeth Bay Mine up for sale, a company spokeswoman said on Friday. The sale comes three weeks after the diamond miner wrote to staff offering voluntary redundancies that will affect at least 130 of its 1,700-strong workforce. "Following a recent review, it was concluded that the best way to secure a longer future for the mine, beyond the current projected 2019 life, is to find a more suitable operator," spokeswoman Pauline Thomas said in a statement.

    Risk of disappointment for copper bulls as wage deals sealed

    Copper bulls who are betting on labour strife this year due to a full calendar of contract talks may be disappointed if early wage deals at two copper mines are a signpost for further agreements with mine workers. Benchmark copper prices rallied 12 percent in December, partly due to fear of shortages if workers go on strike since many major operations in top producers Chile and Peru have contacts expiring this year, including at top mine Escondida. Chile's state-owned Codelco said late last month it had struck a contract deal with workers at its Andina copper mine, while workers at the Lomas Bayas mine accepted a contract offer from operator Glencore Plc (GLEN.L) early in January.

    An investor's best friend? Israel Diamond Exchange launches digital coins

    Israel's diamond exchange is turning to digital currencies to inject new life into a marketplace long ruled by cash and backroom handshakes, but it must first persuade traditionally conservative players that the technology can work. One of the world's largest diamond centres, the exchange hopes its virtual currency will make trading more efficient and less opaque. Current transactions are "often carried out anonymously, with the shake of a hand and minimal documentation", according to a recent report by Israel's Justice Ministry.

    COLUMN-African miners, governments talk past each other, threatening boom: Russell

    Africa's mining industry should be poised on the verge of great things, but instead it appears to be seeking a reset button as miners continue to clash with governments over how best to exploit the continent's resources. Africa is home to large reserves of the metals essential to the battery revolution, such as cobalt and copper, and it is also rich in gold, iron ore, high-quality coal and uranium, to name a few. Of course, not every country in Africa is experiencing problems with its mining sector.

    De Beers returns to South African roots with Kimberley exploration drive

    Almost 130 years after diamond giant De Beers emerged from mines around the dusty South African town of Kimberley, the company is going back to its roots with a clutch of exploration permits to prospect for gem deposits near the place of its birth. South Africa is hardly virgin territory for mineral exploration: over a third of the gold ever produced in history has been extracted from beneath its soil, and industrial-scale diamond mining goes back over a century.
