Yes, sorry, there are actually two threads named BHP Billiton, check them both out, if I had realised I would have called it something different. As for posting the url, if you give me detailed instructions on how to do that on my iPad, I certainly will. GLA.

MINING BONANZA Shareholders in BHP Billiton were feeling flush as the mining giant promised to return £8billion to them. Half would come through buying back investors’ shares, while £4billionn would be through a dividend in January. (This will equate to around £1.90 per share) It comes after BHP sold its US onshore oil and shale gas assets in July.

BHP say they are only going to buy shares that are on the Sydney stock market.

Is it not a case of heads you win and tails you can't lose. If the buyback forces the share price up then we're all better off anyway.

They won't announce the amount until after the completion of the Off Market Buy Back. I have no idea how an "Off Market Buy Back" works, but assuming it is successful, there should be less shares in issue to receive the special divi, hence it should be somewhat north of $2?

BHP cautious but optimistic about long-term outlook: BHP boss Andrew Mackenzie indicated this week the company had so far managed to avoid any significant impact from escalating trade tensions and, while it remained cautious, it was also positive about the outlook for metals demand. He was speaking at the mining giant's annual general meeting in London. "The nature of our industry means we must make bold predictions about the future. If there is one prediction that I can confidently make, it is that demand for commodities will be sustained even as the world shifts to a lower carbon future," Mackenzie told investors. He said with populations growing and more people expecting a better quality of life through improved infrastructure, decarbonisation and electrification, demand for energy, metals and fertilisers should be robust for decades to come. "Renewables, electrification and a low-carbon future offer great opportunities for BHP. They will generate demand for higher volume, as well as higher quality, iron ore, metallurgical coal and copper concentrates - the products our portfolio is built around," Mackenzie said. "You can count on BHP to lead and capitalise quickly on this shift." He said the miner was in a good place to move forward into the 2019 financial year, with free cash flow maximised to US$12.5 billion in the year, capital discipline maintained, net debt reduced by more than $5 billion and the portfolio simplified to meet demand for resources required now and in the future. Despite his positivity, Mackenzie did allow that all global businesses were having to navigate through volatility and monitor events impacting global economic growth and commodities demand. He said it was well known that protectionism had negative flow-on effects for business, as it undercut confidence, disrupted investment, and destroyed productivity, which in turn hit wealth creation and poverty eradication. "Hence, I expect that the current assault on the global trading system will jolt countries outside of this dispute into action. This is not a time for complacency. When the fabric of global trade frays, we must pull together and administer needle and thread," Mackenzie said. He said BHP would continue to stay true to its plans. "There is more to do to realise the full potential of our assets, and how we manage them for shareholders, through technological advances, culture and organic growth."

Did they really have to pay such a premium? Obviously they thought so. I see that RIO's Mongolian venture looks as if it might suffer a delay, but I doubt that copper's going to go out of fashion in the meantime.

Copper demand from China to surge, BHP predicts: The multibillion dollar programme, called the Belt and Road Initiative and launched in 2013, is intended to connect China with the rest of the world through a “belt” of overland corridors and a “road” of shipping lanes. It entails a vast number of overseas construction projects in 115 countries – up from BHP's earlier estimate of 68 – across South America, South East Asia and parts of Africa. In its latest analysis, BHP estimates that the initiative will represent one third of the global economy and drive spending of up to $1.3trn on infrastructure projects by 2023. It will also, according to the blue-chip miner, create a surge in demand for copper. BHP’s analysis expects demand to increase by around 1.6m tonners, around 7% of annual demand, over the next five years. More than 70% of that demand is expected to come from around 100 new power projects. Said BHP: “Copper does not directly benefit as much as steel from the road, rail and other transport and logistics projects that represent around half of the total project outlay. However, the positive spillover effects of this infrastructure is expected to provide a wider field of economy opportunity in recipient countries for decades.” It conceded that foreign investment was a "complex and risky business". But it added: "There are signs that China is developing its institutional statecraft to improve its management of such challenges in the future, and the capacity of its firms to develop infrastructure at scale are beyond doubt." BHP, which owns the world’s largest copper mine, in Chile, derives around 28% of its earnings from the metal. One of its core sectors, it is looking to expand mines in Chile and Australis as it seeks to counter the impact of failing quality at its operations. BRAZIL UPDATE: Separately, BHP updated the London market on the Samarco compensation programme. Samarco, a joint venture between BHP and Vale in Brazil, was involved in a deadly dam collapse in 2015, which killed 19 people and was an environmental disaster. Samarco, which has always claimed it followed Brazilian laws, has been in negotiations with local prosecutors ever since. Press reports said that a final compensation deal had been reached and payments would now be made to families of the 19 dead as well as those who had lost homes and other properties in the disaster. BHP said it had noted the media reports, and added: "The agreement outlines the processes and principles for the negotiation and implementation by the Renova Foundation for the formal compensation programme for impacted people Mariana, Minas Gerais. To date, the Renova Foundation has been providing compensation and support to many of the individuals in Mariana who have been impacted by the dam failure." While BHP said that a restart of operations in 2019 was highly unlikely, Samarco has said that it expected to obtain the licences needed to resume operations next year.
