SHANGHAI, Jun. 1 (SMM) - Chilean government data showed Tuesday the country’s copper production slid 1.8% year-on-year in April due mainly to strike at the Escondida copper mine, wenhua.com reported.
Chilean copper output was 429,241 tonnes in April, compared to 436,902 tonnes in the same period of last year, according to the INE.
The 43 days strike at the Escondida mine forced its owner BHP Billiton to declare force majeure.
