BHP Billiton has sold its Cerro Colorado copper mine in Chile to private equity firm EMR Capital for $US230m ($A310m). BHP will also receive $US40m from the sale of inventory from the mine, while a potential additional payment of up to $US50m is linked to the outlook for the copper price. EMR’s co-founder Jason Chang says the firm’s focus is on increasing the mine’s output and its resource base, rather than the copper price. Chang expects EMR to make further acquisitions in the next two years.
