BHP loses output due to blackout

Updated: 2016-11-09 09:16

    BHP Billiton said on Tuesday it lost about three weeks worth of production from its Olympic Dam copper mine in Australia due to a power outage in late September.

    As a result, the mine's original output guidance of 200,000 tons for fiscal 2017 is under review, the mine's chief Jacqui McGill said.

    A massive blackout in the state of South Australia on September 28 forced BHP to suspend production in order to divert back-up power to maintain essential operations.
