    Aberdeen is the third-biggest shareholder in BHP's London- listed stock, with a 4.88 percent stake, just behind Elliott, which has a 5.04 percent holding, according to Thomson Reuters data.

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.

    Declines for Next (NXT.L) and Standard Chartered (STAN.L) weighed on Britain's top share index on Wednesday, helping to offset a rally in commodities-exposed stocks. Britain's blue chip FTSE 100 (.FTSE) ended 0.07 percent down at 7,487.96 points, while the mid-cap index (.FTMC) rose by 0.5 percent. The FTSE gave up some gains after robust UK manufacturing data, which bolstered expectations for an interest rate increase from the Bank of England on Thursday and sent sterling higher.

    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.

    Small mining companies shun London market after IPO flops

    Lacklustre performances by small mining companies on the London Stock Exchange are driving rivals in need of cash to find alternative ways to raise capital, either by merging or turning to other markets such as Toronto. Six small miners have listed in London this year, up from two last year, but four of those are now trading below their offer price despite a rally in metals, led by a 27 percent jump in copper and aluminium prices and a 10 percent rise for gold. London hosts the world's biggest mining companies, including Rio Tinto (RIO.L) (RIO.AX) and BHP Billiton (BLT.L) (BHP.AX), but the poor performance of newly listed miners and other small miners trading in London is pushing some to change their plans.
