Ravensthorpe Bhp mine closedown

 

FOLLOWING months of mounting speculation over the viability of its Ravensthorpe nickel mine, BHP Billiton has today confirmed market suspicions, announcing it will begin the progressive shutdown of the Western Australian operation and cut close to 2000 staff.
BHP said the decision to pull the pin on Ravensthorpe, which has been in production less than a year, was in line with the miner’s forecast for lower profits, especially given the current nickel market and high capital expenditure involved at Ravensthorpe.

The Metals & Mining sector added its weight to the FTSE 100 index on Wednesday after BHP Billiton announced it will take a $1.6 billion hit in 2009 after opting to close down its Ravensthorpe nickel mine in Australia in reaction to declining demand.

BHP, which last month withdrew its bid for peer Rio Tinto citing deterioration of near-term global economic conditions and lack of any certainty as to when conditions would improve, said it will indefinitely suspend operations at Ravensthorpe Nickel Operation in Australia, as a result of which its Yabulu operation will also stop the processing of the mixed nickel cobalt hydroxide product.

The company said this decision was largely the result of diminished profitability prospects in the current environment, significant and continuing deterioration in the outlook for the nickel market, and the projected level of capital expenditure required to achieve and sustain projected production volumes at Ravensthorpe.

  2. In the time of recession one job or one work is hardly fulfilling needs of people. So everyone is looking for supplementary source of income.
    Now the question is what can be that source of income in such a bad phase of economy??

    Well it’s very difficult to start new business at this point of time as it requires lot of cash and efforts. So again question is how to make more money in such conditions when needs are same and income is low?

    We strongly suggest that if you like to take bit of risk and don’t want to spend too much money and time on new venture then stock market is the right place for you.
    To be very frank this is not the right time for investment that is for long term to medium term investment but every day is a favourable day for day trading. No matter if NSE or BSE
    is bullish or bearish as In stock market one can earn in both of these trends.


    So just think about it and see if stock market can be the right place to make some extra money.


    Please feel free to contact us for any query.

  3. Most people these days do not have a checking account, the reason why is that they incur many bank charges. I seem to remember saving at least 25 dollars a week when we got rid of the cheque book.
    The secret to good banking is to let your money work for you. Leave your money in the bank and pay for everything except cash on your credit card. That leaves cash available in an emergency. Clear the full amount on your credit card every month. The items you buy with your credit card will have insurance cover in-case of breakages or loss's.If you clear your credit card each month it will only cost you the annual fee.With point systems like Altitude you can cash your points in for the annual fee

  4. Nice blog would like to add that NSE and BSE are one of the most superior stock exchanges of India. If you wish to earn good money from the share market then you need to understand the functionality of the stock market properly.

    Indian stock market offers lot of earning opportunities still many less traders earn from it. Now the question is who earns from the share trading? To be honest only those who rely on stock research as no one can earn big by speculating in the market.

  5. Hi,
    Its true stock trading is not everyone’s cup of tea however one should try it to see if they have potential to earn money from the stock market or not.
    Stock trading can only be rewarding if share trading is done with proper research. Those who believe in speculation will not sustain for long in stock market. Have fait on research tools and grab some stock market knowledge and see how much you can earn via just stock trading.
