Japan's JX aims near full run rate at Caserones copper mine by end-Sept

TOKYO, May 11 (Reuters) - Japan’s JX Holdings Inc said on Wednesday its Caserones copper mine in Chile ran at a utilisation rate of about 80 percent in March, missing its earlier target of full utilisation throughout the month.

JX, whose metal unit is Japan’s biggest copper smelter, aims to reach a near full utilisation rate at Caserones by the end of September from around 80 percent to 90 percent now, Executive Officer Katsuyuki Ota told a news conference on its full-year earnings results.
