Chile copper output up 10.8 percent through July -Cochilco

    SANTIAGO, Sept 11 (Reuters) - Chile produced 3.31 million
tonnes of copper in the first seven months of the year, an
increase of 10.8 percent from the same period a year earlier,
Chilean copper commission Cochilco said on Tuesday.
    Chile produced 481,700 tonnes of copper in July, an increase
of 2.9 percent compared to July 2017, boosted by higher output
at large, privately held mines in the world's top copper
producer.
    Production through July was aided by a low basis for
comparison following a strike last year at BHP Billiton's
 Escondida mine, the world's largest. 
    Escondida's production increased by 85.2 percent through
July to 758,200 tonnes, Cochilco said. Collahuasi, owned by
Anglo American Plc and Glencore Plc and the
country's second-largest mine by output, ramped up production by
6 percent to 305,300 tonnes.  
    State miner Codelco's            production increased 0.8
percent year on year to 1.02 million tonnes through July, the
agency's figures showed.
