Global copper output pushes higher in Q3

Early indications of third-quarter mined copper output show a surprisingly positive trend in mine supply growth from an industry that has struggled this year with poor ore grade qualities and a wave of industrial action.

Mine restarts in the aftermath of 2008′s financial crisis and operational improvements at some expansion projects helped lift production rates at some of the world’s largest publicly listed mining companies by 1.5 percent in the quarter to their highest since the third quarter of 2010, corporate reports showed last month.

Following is a list of production totals from 14 of the world’s biggest miners:

Name Q2 2011 Q3 2011 Pct

Freeport 356,520 349,720 -1.9 pct
BHP Billiton 272,300 200,300 -19.1 pct
