 (Updates with new focus on copper and lithium figures and
context on February rains)
    By Dave Sherwood 
    March 7 (Reuters) - Chile's copper export revenue in
February dropped nearly 19 percent from the same month the
previous year to $2.59 billion, the country's central bank said
on Thursday. 
    Lithium exports also fell during the same period to $60
million in February, down from $76 million the previous year.
    Unusually heavy rains and flooding in the Atacama desert in
February docked production at many of the country's top copper
and lithium mines.
    Total exports from world top copper producer Chile fell 12.2
percent to $5.55 billion in the second month of the year, while
imports increased slightly to $5.27 billion, leaving a trade gap
of $276 million.
