Diversified miner South32 on Thursday reported an increase in production across most of its portfolio for the three months to June, compared with the previous quarter, but its full-year performance was lower for several commodities.

The Perth-headquartered group, which operates in Australia and South Africa, increased its alumina and aluminium production by 2% and 1% respectively in the June quarter, to 1.3-million tonnes and 248 000 t. The Mozal smelter, in Mozambique, and the South African aluminium refinery each delivered a 2% increase in output.
