07:08 EDTBHPBHP reports on coal production for nine month ended March 31
BHP Billiton reported on its coal production for the nine months ended March 31, stating Western Australia Iron Ore achieved record production despite a decline in volumes in the March 2012 quarter as a result of cyclone activity. Full year WAIO production guidance remains unchanged as scheduled maintenance and tie-in activities are expected to constrain performance in the June quarter. The company said Queensland Coal production remained constrained in the March quarter as a result of industrial action and heavy rainfall. The extent to which industrial action will continue to affect production, sales and unit costs is difficult to predict, however with inventories now severely depleted, the impact on future quarters may be significant. Force majeure was declared across all BMA sites in April and remains in place. For energy coal, the company reported production records for the nine months and quarter ended March were achieved at two of its high value, export orientated energy coal operations, New South Wales Energy Coal and Cerrejon Coal. Preparation for the resumption of mining activity at San Juan Coal has commenced, with a full restart expected in the June quarter. Reference Link
