(Bloomberg) -- Argentina’s government is limiting exports of beef, a staple in the country, in the latest unorthodox move to try to contain runaway inflation that’s approaching 50% annually.President Alberto Fernandez told a key beef export association that they won’t be allowed to sell the product abroad for 30 days, according to a Production Ministry statement released late Monday. In that period, the government will determine a set of emergency measures for the sector.The measure shows that the government is willing to sacrifice much-needed dollars from exports to appease local consumers ahead of a key midterm election later this year. The country’s beef exports in 2020 amounted to roughly $3 billion, but the government may be more focused on the political cost of falling domestic consumption.“The president expressed his concern over the sustained growth in domestic beef prices over the last few months,” according to the statement. Discussion at the meeting also included “possible steps to restrict speculative practices” and fiscal evasion. Some of the measures will be adopted over coming days.Fernandez added that the 30-day period could be shortened if the implementation of the measures leads to “positive results,” the note added.Read more: Argentina Inflation Rose Faster Than Expected Again in AprilArgentine beef exports have been surging for four years and reached a record in the first two months of 2021, according to beef group Ciccra. The suspension resembles similar policy decisions during 2003-2015 under the presidencies of Nestor Kirchner and his successor, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, which led cattle numbers to plunge and the country losing market share in the international market.The government last month formalized a registry to ensure domestic supplies of beef at accessible prices as well as monitor shipments and supplies at home.Not all beef cuts may be included in the resolution, which has not yet been published, according to a person with knowledge of the matter.

Maersk Drilling sold two oil drilling rigs to U.S.-based energy infrastructure company New Fortress Energy Inc (NFE) which it will convert into floating liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities, the companies said on Monday. Maersk sold the jack-up drilling rig Maersk Guardian to NFE and the two companies have agreed to the sale of the Maersk Gallant rig for closing in June for a total price of $31 million for both, Maersk said in a statement. A NFE spokesman confirmed in a separate email that the purchases are part of the company's strategy to expand into the burgeoning global LNG market by using existing infrastructure to save on costs.
Taiwan is mobilising its diplomatic corps to hunt for speedier delivery of COVID-19 vaccines - a quest that has become more urgent since a sudden rise in domestic cases on an island that has vaccinated less than 1% of its population. Taiwan has reported more than 700 new domestic infections during the past week, leading to new curbs in the capital, Taipei, and shocking a population that had become accustomed to life carrying on almost normally with the pandemic well under control. Taiwan, a major semiconductor manufacturing hub, has only received about 300,000 shots so far for its more than 23 million people, all AstraZeneca Plc vaccines, and those are rapidly running out.

YERINGTON, Nev., May 17, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nevada Copper Corp. (TSX: NCU) (OTC: NEVDF) (“Nevada Copper” or the “Company”) today provided an operations update and announces filing of its Q1 2021 Financial Statements and the related management’s discussion and analysis. Q1 2021 Highlights Operations Mining of First Stope: The Company successfully initiated stope mining in Q1 with the first stoping area carrying an average grade of 2.5% CuEq. Lateral development continued to ramp-up in the quarter at the Company’s underground mine at its Pumpkin Hollow project (the “Underground Mine”). As previously announced, development progress has been temporarily slowed in the past few weeks due to cautious progress through a water bearing dike with completion expected in the coming weeks.Mine Hoisting: Following completion of the Main Shaft material handling system in Q4 2020, the Company achieved a peak daily hoisting rate of over 3,000 tons by February 2021 at the Underground Mine and has achieved a hoisting rate equivalent to 5,000 tons per day (“tpd”) on a shift basis demonstrating that the mine hoisting system is capable of functioning at design specifications. In Q1, the Company completed significant electrical upgrades to provide sufficient power for additional production equipment and ventilation in support of ramp-up at the Underground Mine. As previously reported, certain commissioning items that constrained hoisting rates early in the quarter were rectified. With the installation of additional ventilation as planned and completion of dike grouting in the coming weeks, the Company anticipates sustainable production of 3,000 tpd by the end of Q2 and continuing to ramp-up further to steady state production.Ventilation Expansion: To date, the Company has completed the construction of the fan bulkheads and is currently installing the two remaining underground ventilation fans to be completed as scheduled this month. The surface ventilation fans planned for installation in Q3 2021, may now arrive at site a few weeks later than planned due to extended shipping times arising from COVID-19 related delays. Consequently, it is expected that the commissioning of the surface fans will not be completed until Q4 2021, which is anticipated to delay the achievement of full steady state production of 5,000 tpd by a similar period.Processing: There were significant improvements made to the processing plant performance and recoveries during the quarter. The Company achieved a weekly average of 4,700 tpd and a maximum daily milling throughput of 5,000 tpd during March, while batch processing ore. 119,000 tons of ore was processed through the concentrator in Q1. Approximately 3,173 tons of concentrate was produced at a 24% average copper grade for Q1 and reaching 26% average copper grade in March. Recoveries improved from 82% in Q4 2020, to recovery levels above 90% in 2021. “I am pleased with the progress achieved in Q1 at our underground mine and the dedication of our team,” stated Mike Ciricillo, Chief Executive Officer of Nevada Copper. “The operation made significant progress through the ramp-up during the first quarter, and we look forward to the interim milestone of production rates of 3,000 tpd expected in June, 2021 and continuing our ramp-up to steady state production.” Open Pit and Property Exploration Plans During Q1 the Company released its property development objectives, including: Open Pit: Follow-up on internal studies which indicate optimized project scaling has potential to improve project economics, including a concurrent phase 1 and phase 2, plus potential larger ultimate production scale; andPlans to undertake infill and extension drilling with aim to bring newly defined mineral inventory into reserves, providing the potential to further improve project economics, followed by release of a resource and reserve update. Exploration: Plans to follow-up on new exploration targets added through the further expansion of the Company’s properties to the east and analysis of geophysical surveys. Underground Future Extension: Additional inferred resources to be in-filled as underground mining advances into new zones;Underground mine extension targets to be further evaluated, including a new potentially large target to the east of the main shaft that is previously untested; andStudy of future expansion potential. Finance Updates During 2021, the Company completed certain financing transactions, including: The Company completed a public offering of units for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately C$38 million and concurrent private placement for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately C$13.1 million.The Company also entered into a credit facility with Pala providing for US$15 million, plus a further US$15 million accordion which Pala has confirmed will be made available to the Company as required (the “2021 Credit Facility”). The Company has drawn the full US$15 million under the original 2021 Credit Facility and US$7.5 million under the accordion feature.Pala has further confirmed it will provide up to an additional US$10 million to the Company through an increase to the 2021 Credit Facility or other form of financing as may be agreed with the Company, in order to provide additional financial resources needed to address the impact of slower development progress through the dike structure during ramp-up.The availability of funds under the Company’s working capital facility with Concord Resources Limited was also increased from US$35 million to US$40 million. During Q1, the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Nevada Copper, Inc., settled legacy disputes with two contractors which improved the Company’s working capital position. Q1 2021 Financial Statements The Company has filed on SEDAR its condensed interim financial statements and the related management’s discussion and analysis for the quarter ended March 31, 2021.

Road blockades connected to weeks of anti-government protests in Colombia will be lifted by security forces in coordination with mayors and provincial governors, President Ivan Duque said on Monday. The sometimes deadly demonstrations, originally called in late April against a now-canceled tax plan, have expanded to include demands like a basic income, an end to police violence and opportunities for young people. The government says some are connected to criminal and guerrilla groups, which it also blames for sparking looting and other violence.
