Workers to strike at BHP's Escondida copper mine amid Chilean protests

Unionized workers at BHP Group's Escondida copper mine in Chile will down tools Oct. 22 in solidarity with protests across the country following a hike in public transport costs, Reuters reported Oct. 21.

The workers will strike for at least one shift, the report said, citing Patricio Tapia, president of Escondida's Union #1.

Mining Minister Baldo Prokurica had told the newswire that mining operations in the country operated normally through the weekend during the protests, which left at least seven people dead.

In the first quarter of its fiscal 2020, BHP's copper output from Escondida, the world's largest copper mine, dropped 1% year over year to 292,900 tonnes.

The mining giant recently signed new power supply contracts for the Escondida and Spence mines in Chile in an effort to cut energy costs and emissions at the two operations.
