Glencore to Shutdown Some of South African Coal Mining Operations

Glencore is considering the closure of some of its coal-mining operations in South Africa, which would reduce its overall South African production by at least 5 million saleable tons of coal a year and affect more than 1,000 employees. Outlining that the proposed closure would affect about 1,070 employees, that the affected areas included the Optimum opencast operations, large portions of the coal processing plants and associated support services. Optimum produces 10 million tons of saleable coal a year from opencast and underground mines, half of it bought domestically by State-owned power utility Eskom and half of it exported, according to the report. Optimum currently intends to retain the underground mining operations as well as sufficient processing capacity at Optimum to ensure the continued supply of coal to Eskom's coal-fired Hendrina power station. The affected operations would be placed on care and maintenance and considered for reopening if economic conditions improve. The company announced that Optimum had informed the Department of Mineral Resources and relevant unions of the potential closures and would now enter into a Section 189 process with the recognized unions and employees to determine the settlement for all affected employees. In addition, Optimum would ensure that the employee engagement process was conducted in line with applicable labour legislation. Optimum would explore options for redeployment across the Glencore South African coal operations as well as putting in place support services for affected employees and their families. The company added that it was continuing to review all of its coal operations in the light of the prevailing negative economic climate. Meanwhile, the strategy of increased production by big producers of iron ore has drawn criticism from within the mining industry, with Glencore's Glasenberg saying that rising production is overwhelming demand.

Glencore Plc Halts 5 Million Tonnes of Coal Output with Three Weeks Shutdown in Australia

Glencore Plc has shut down all of its coal operations in Australia from December 14, 2014 for a period of three weeks, halting 5 million tonnes of coal production in the process. The company in November first announced its intentions to temporarily shutter its Australian coal mines for three weeks, saying at the time that the move is a considered management decision given the current oversupply situation and reduces the need to push incremental sales into an already weak pricing environment. The move impacts volumes equivalent to 6% of Glencore's Australian coal output in 2013.

Glencore Mulls Sale Of Assets

Glencore Plc (LSE:GLEN) may look to sell some assets. The company said that it is considering the sale of some nickel and cobalt projects amid lower prices as the company intends to focus on returning cash to shareholders. The potential project sales include the Araguaiai and Sipilou nickel and cobalt projects in Brazil as well as the Cosmos nickel mine in Western Australia.
