Reports Q4 copper production 463 kt, up 20%. Reports Q4 iron ore production 63.6M tons, up 6%. BHP Chief Executive Officer, Andrew Mackenzie, said: "We have delivered a strong finish to the 2018 financial year with an eight per cent increase in annual production and record output at Western Australia Iron Ore, Queensland Coal and at our Spence copper mine in Chile. We further simplified the portfolio with the announced divestment of Cerro Colorado in Chile and Gregory Crinum in Australia and our investment in South Flank supports our ability to supply low cost, high quality products into Asia. Good prices and our culture of continuous improvement give us positive momentum into the 2019 financial year."
