BHP adjusts copper and nickel expectations

Major BHP has lowered its full-year production expectations for its copper and nickel divisions, while warning of tight labour markers in Australia and Chile for the rest of the year. “BHP delivered safe and reliable production in the third quarter. Our Western Australian iron-ore business continues to perform strongly as we navigate the state’s first major Covid-19 wave, and we remain on track to achieve full-year volume and cost guidance. Amid record-high prices, our Queensland metallurgical coal business delivered strong underlying performance and benefited from better weather in the quarter,” said CEO Mike Henry on Thursday.
