The world's biggest miner, BHP, says its first-quarter iron ore production has risen eight per cent on strong Chinese demand for high-grade ore, but cut its fiscal 2019 guidance for copper production, citing outages at key mines.
BHP trimmed its 2019 copper production forecast by about three per cent to a range of 1.62 million tonnes to 1.71 million tonnes, citing reduced production at its Spence and Olympic Dam mines in Chile and Australia, respectively.
