The shares have climbed by 30 per cent since touching a low in early July and have outperformed the mining index by nine per cent so far this year.Even with the reduced forecast, 2010 output is due to rise 20 per cent from last year due to the plant expansion at Los Pelambres.Pre-tax profit rose to $932.1m (£605.6m) for the six months to 30 June, from $477.6m in the same period for 2009, on a 50 per cent rise in turnover to $1.76bn. Antofagasta declared an interim dividend of four cents up from 3.4 cents. last_img
