2016 Half-Year Production Report

Production highlights

  • Production, as expected, was down period-on-period in commodities where we previously announced, and are delivering on, proactive supply reductions (copper, zinc, lead, coal and oil).
  • Own sourced copper production of 703,000 tonnes was 4% down on H1 2015, due to the previously announced curtailments at our African operations, partly offset by generally higher grades in South America.
  • Own sourced zinc production of 506,500 tonnes was 31% lower than H1 2015, due to the previously announced cuts implemented principally in Australia and Peru.
  • Own sourced nickel production of 57,100 tonnes was a 17% improvement, as a result of increased treatment of own feeds, following the planned Sudbury smelter shutdown in 2015.
  • Coal production of 58.8 million tonnes was 14% lower, reflecting production curtailments, disposal of Optimum Coal, the scheduled closures of two mines and some volume reductions and restrictions in Colombia.
  • Glencore's share of oil production was 4.4 million barrels, a decrease of 18%, reflecting expected depletion rates and the preservation of the resource for an improved price / margin environment.
  • Agricultural Products processed / produced 6.4 million tonnes, a 43% increase, following the acquisition of two crush plants in H2 2015, stronger crush volumes in Argentina and an earlier start to sugarcane processing in Brazil.
  • Full year 2016 production guidance is detailed on page 19 of the full report.
