Reuters reported that Chilean copper production rose by 6 percent between January and October compared to the same period last year, reaching 4.74 million tonnes. According to the country’s copper commission Cochilco, the rise was attributed to the stronger performance of BHP’s Escondida copper mine, the world’s largest, which this year produced 95,900 tonnes of the red metal, an increase of 47 percent due to a strike in the year-ago period.

State copper miner Codelco registered a 3.4 percent drop in production from January to October to 1.45 million tonnes.
