Mining giant BHP Billiton reported a slump in copper output Wednesday as strike action at the world's largest mine for the metal dented production, while flagging the sale of some US shale assets. The world's biggest miner said copper production slid 44 percent to 227,000 tonnes in the first quarter of 2017 compared to the same period last year, revising down its annual forecast to between 1.33 million and 1.36 million tonnes. Earlier this month, Rio Tinto also reported a plunge in copper output due to the strike in Chile, where it has a 30 percent interest.

It proposed merging the British and Australian entities into a single Australian-headquartered and Australian tax resident listed company.
