TOKYO, July 31 (Reuters) - JX Holdings Inc said on Friday its Caserones copper mine in Chile was on track to reach full operation in September.

"We had a temporary problem from flooding in March and April, and heavy snow in July. But the mine is running at a utilisation rate of around 70 percent now and we expect it will reach full operation in September," Executive Officer Katsuyuki Ota told a news conference on its first-quarter earnings.
