Anglo American's (LON:AAL) shares were virtually unchanged in late afternoon trading following a slew of reports earlier.
The company reported second quarter production figures and a fall in the contribution to underlying earnings from Kumba Iron Ore and De Beers.
Anglo American said iron ore and copper production rose by 12% and 7% respectively in the second quarter while metallurgical coal achieved record output.
Iron ore production increased to 12.9 million tonnes due to the ramp-up of the Kolomela mine and production improvements at Amapá.
Copper production increased to 161,100 tonnes with the srong ramp-up of the Los Bronces expansion offset by lower grades, lower recoveries and adverse weather.
Metallurgical coal achieved a quarterly production record, with export production increasing by 23% to 4.8 million tonnes, benefiting from productivity improvements.
Nickel production increased by 65% to 10,900 tonnes as production from Barro Alto continued to ramp up.
Platinum equivalent refined production was flat at 583,600 ounces. Refined production was 623,000 ounces, 3% less, due to the slower than expected ramp-up of the converter plant following the planned maintenance.
Diamond production decreased by 11% to 7.2 million carats largely in response to market conditions; while focusing on planned maintenance and waste stripping.
Norseman Gold (LON:NGL) says that due to strong demand the proposed placing announced on 18 July has been increased to raise approximately A$25m through the issue of 625,000,000 new ordinary shares at 4 cents apiece.

Namakwa Diamonds (LON:NAD) has completed the supplementary water pipeline, transfer reservoirs and intake and intermediate pump stations for the Kao mine in Lesotho.

Kenmare Resources (LON:KMR) has raised £38.4m, before expenses, through a placing of 120 million new ordinary shares at 32p apiece.
