SYDNEY, May 26 (Reuters) - Production is returning to normal at the giant Olympic Dam copper and gold mine in Australia seven months after an accident cut output by 75 percent, owner BHP Billiton (BHP.AX) (BLT.L) said on Wednesday.
 
"Over the last seven months an extensive repair programme has been undertaken. Significant works underground, in the shaft itself and to the surface infrastructure have been completed," it said in a statement emailed to Reuters.

Normal production rates would resume by the end of the June quarter, the company said.
