Text size Aa Aa

(Reuters) – Chilean copper miner Antofagasta Plc <ANTO.L> reported a 23.7 percent jump in fourth-quarter production on Wednesday, bolstered by better grades and output at its Centinela mine, and maintained its production guidance for the coming year.

The FTSE 100 company said fourth-quarter production rose to 220,000 tonnes from 177,800 tonnes reported a year earlier. This led to 2018 production of 725,300 tonnes, a 3 percent advance on the previous year.
