|Chile copper exports down 6.3% in October to $2.16 billion
The value of Chile's copper exports fell in October to $2.16 billion, down 6.3% from a year earlier, as a sharp fall in the value of cathodes offset higher concentrate shipments, figures from the Central Bank showed Monday.
Chile exported $1.07 billion worth of concentrates during the month, up 21.5%, while exports of cathode fell 21.1% to $955 million.
Copper exports during the first 10 months of the year fell 11.5% to $22.18 billion, including $10.25 billion worth of cathode and $10 billion worth of concentrates.
Exports of other minerals largely rose in October, including iron ore (up 82.1% to $95 million), silver (up 31.3% to $26 million), and lithium carbonate (up 41.8% to $29 million). But exports of gold fell in October, down 26.5% to $51 million.
