South32 output dips for most commodities

South 32 has missed its full-year production guidance for several commodities after bad weather and challenging conditions at some operations hit performance.

The diversified miner posted a two per cent increase in aluminium production and a five per cent rise in manganese ore production, but output for all other commodities declined compared to the previous year.

“While we didn’t achieve the level of consistency that we expect from our broader portfolio, our alumina, nickel and manganese operations finished the year on a strong note,” chief executive Graham Kerr said in a statement.
