    4 Mining Stocks in Focus on Unpredictable Iron Ore Prices

    Last week, iron ore prices logged the largest gain of 2018, climbing nearly 7% till Apr 19. People’s Bank of China’s decision to trim the reserve ratio requirement (RRR) and soaring crude oil prices were primarily the two major catalysts to the rally. Some analysts believe that speculative trading activity in the market backed the price upswing as several rebar traders are now investing in raw materials.

    [$$] BHP Billiton cuts iron ore production forecast

    BHP Billiton, the world’s biggest mining company, has cut production guidance for its most important commodity after problems with the giant machines used to pick up and empty rail cars loaded with iron ore. It blamed the downgrade on “car dumper reliability issues as we push to record levels of production” at its operations in western Australia. Iron ore is BHP’s main source of earnings.

    BHP cuts 2018 iron ore forecast, cites rail car upload problems

    BHP Billiton Ltd cut its 2018 fiscal year iron ore output guidance on Thursday citing issues in its railroad car unloading system, while also slightly raising its copper output expectations given higher production at the Escondida mine. A car dumper is a machine that unloads bulk cargoes from rail road cars. Overall, the outcome of the global miner's third quarter production was balanced as lower iron ore output and eased guidance should be broadly offset by a slight pick up in third quarter copper production and upgraded guidance, said Sydney-based brokerage Shaw and Partners in a report.

    [$$] BHP Trims Iron Ore, Olympic Dam Output Forecasts

    Ltd. (BHP.AU) said it would produce less iron ore than expected this fiscal year because of unplanned maintenance work, and also cut expectations for its Olympic Dam copper mine in Australia. BHP, the world’s top listed miner, on Thursday reported iron-ore production of 58 million metric tons for the three months through March, up 8% on-year but 6% lower than the quarter immediately prior. The company meantime lowered fiscal-year production guidance for its Olympic Dam mine in southern Australia to roughly 135,000 tons from 150,000 tons because of a slower-than-anticipated ramp up following maintenance work there.

    BHP Billiton plc (ADR) (BBL) Enters Produce Nickel Sulphate Venture

    The company said that it sees the battery minerals industry as being in short supply right now, which is prompting it to explore the production of nickel sulphate from its nickel refinery in Western Australia. It will also be considering the production of cobalt, according to a company executive. BHP Billiton believes this will be a profitable business venture due to the fact that cobalt and nickel are both key ingredients for the production of lithium ion batteries, which means that a demand for this product will increase as more global automakers start producing electric vehicles.

    BHP Billiton to produce nickel sulphate next year, eying cobalt on battery boom

    BHP Billiton (BHP.AX)(BLT.L) is expanding its business as a supplier of battery minerals at its nickel refinery in Western Australia, planning to start producing nickel sulphate next year and looking at cobalt output as well, a company executive said.

After the DRC, Australia has the world's second-largest mineral reserves.

    Global miner BHP Billiton (BHP.AX) (BLT.L) said on Thursday it had made a final decision to leave the World Coal Association (WCA) over differences on climate change but would remain a member of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
