i suppose if you just watched the price of Brent crude oil, you will see a mirror with this share price. so basically if oil goes up my shares in BLT will go up :-) but i will be impacted at the petrol station :-(

i can see 17.80 being hit again for this share...

BHP Billiton to produce nickel sulphate next year, eying cobalt on battery boom

SHANGHAI (Reuters) - BHP Billiton (BHP.AX)(BLT.L) is expanding its business as a supplier of battery minerals at its nickel refinery in Western Australia, planning to start producing nickel sulphate next year and looking at cobalt output as well, a company executive said.

Cobalt and nickel are both critical ingredients for lithium ion batteries, and are expected to see a boom in demand as global automakers transition into producing electric vehicles.

Most of the world's cobalt supply comes from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), which has been beset by governance and human rights concerns. After the DRC, Australia has the world's second-largest mineral reserves.

"Part of our transition to becoming a global supplier of battery materials means we have started looking at cobalt options as well," Eduard Haegel, president of BHP Billiton's Nickel West refinery, said on Wednesday at a battery materials conference in Shanghai.

"We see cobalt as remaining in short supply ... For this reason we are looking to broaden our support of the battery sector by increasing our contribution to cobalt supply."

BHP is already due to start producing nickel sulphate at its Nickel West project next year, Haegel said, and is in the early stages of considering a plan to double that output.

The miner could grow its cobalt production and sell it as cobalt sulphate, a battery ready form of the metal, he said.

BHP could do this by developing a cobalt circuit at its Kwinana Nickel refinery and by increasing cobalt recovery at its Kalgoorlie smelter, both in Western Australia, as well as potentially taking third party cobalt concentrate, he said.

The miner said last year it would retool its Nickel West operations to focus on producing supply for the battery industry, and Haegel said it has been building a solid chain of battery customers.

It expects to have sold 90 percent of its nickel sulphate supply by the end of 2019, two years earlier than anticipated.

BHP expects to sell 65-70 percent of this year's nickel output to the battery sector, about 45,000-50,000 tonnes of metal, based on last year's figures, Haegel said.

Although an investment decision to go ahead has not yet been made, BHP is advancing plans to potentially double capacity at its nickel sulphate operations to 200,000 tonnes, depending on industry demand, which would create the world's largest nickel sulphate plant at Nickel West, he said.

Bad bad results
20 Feb '18
Which ever way you look at it these are bad results. TO is only marginally up only because commodity prices are up. Some commodity prices have doubled. The productivity of the company has deteriorated considerably. The divi is up but only as a bribe to stop share holder revolt against management. The debt of the company has not fallen very much at all. They will lose a chunk of money on shale disposal. Hopefully management can pull their finger out for the year end but these interim results are a dissapointment. The free cash in the first half only just covers the dividend.

Just another publicity hit from someone who is looking to get back in at a lower price. I wouldn't pay too much attention to his opinion. As with all cyclical shares, I will be watchful, but I don't intend to sell at present. The div is there and the medium to long term prospects are still good. For me it's a hold.

RE: A Fair Gender Balance
15 Jan '18
You are off the scale of nuts. Investing by gender is the surest way to go bust.

No investor cares about the gender of the directors or staff. As long as they make money. If fund managers thought that women were better investors, no man would be employed in the city. No one has ever cared about the gender of an employee or director. It is all down to how much money they can make for the shareholders.

GSK is run by a woman who is a walking disaster. Interserve is run by a woman who is doing a fantastic job with a crap hand. BLT is run by men and are doing a great job at the moment. Although it could be argued Rio is doing better.

A Fair Gender Balance

LLucan (Lord Lucan I presume). If you would be kind enough to climb down from Shergar you would see that BLT has Anita Frew, Carolyn, Hewson and Baroness Shriki Vadera on their Board and have pledged that it wants half its workforce to be women by 2025. Time enough for you to disappear again !

Why does this site insist on inserting 8 spurious characters to replace one apostrophe? Usually they get replaced by pound signs or similar. Any one know how I can make this irritation go away? TIA

Reply to crazy post.

You are nuts and will go bankrupt. BLT has a men in charge, not that it matters. Ken MacKenzie (Chairman)
Andrew Mackenzie (CEO). GSK has fallen by 20% since they appointed a female. Not that this matters since in my opinion GSK have gone off in the wrong direction. Couple this with Anglo American which was nearly bankrupted by Cynthia Carroll, a female.

Investing in companies by gender is the dumbest thing a feminist has come up with.

My NY resolution in light of the global media attention as a consequence of the male domination/bullying in Hollywood, Westminster etc and the gender pay gap is only to invest in Companies GSK, BLT etc who have high profile female leaders/Directors and you know what so far there is sense and reward in this approach and investment strategy. I hope others out there will follow suit and join in and help to create a future society we can all be proud of.

Nickel
10 Aug '17
From telegraph...."The rise of electric vehicles is driving BHP Billiton to invest heavily in nickel. The world’s biggest mining house had planned to end its Nickel West mine ­operations in Western Australia, but is now looking to expand them. It expects ­demand for nickel for electric car batteries to account for 90pc of its output within five or six years, replacing traditional markets, such as stainless steel makers.
Last year, BHP produced 85,000 tons of nickel, just under 5pc of world supply."
