South32 Ltd. advises it is aware that the Constitutional Court of Colombia has issued its final ruling on our application to annul its decision, regarding the alleged health and environmental impacts of our Cerro Matoso operation on the surrounding communities.



South32 welcomes the Court?s decision to annul those orders, which required Cerro Matoso to pay direct financial compensatory damages to community members in relation to the above allegations and to establish an ethnic development fund. The orders, which require Cerro Matoso to provide ongoing health care to community members alleging health impacts, and to submit to a new consultative environmental licensing process were not annulled. Whilst we disagree with the original Court in deciding, without evidential basis, that Cerro Matoso is causing the alleged impacts, we will seek to co-operate with respect to the remaining orders, subject to the reservation of our rights under applicable international investment treaties. Production has not been impacted by the decision handed down by the Court, and we remain proud of the positive contribution we make to supporting social and economic growth within the local community surrounding Cerro Matoso.

Revenue for the interim period increased to USD3.494 billion (2016: USD3.221 billion), profit attributable to equity holders of South32 lowered to USD543 million (2016: USD620 million), while headline earnings per share from continuing operations fell to USD9.9 cents per share (2016: USD11.6 cents per share).



Dividend

South32 announced that the Board has resolved to pay an interim dividend of USD4.3 cents per share for the half year ended 31 December 2017 and a special dividend of USD3 cents per share.



Company outlook

FY18 production guidance is unchanged for the majority of our operations with Group volumes expected to increase marginally in H2 FY18. Production at South Africa Manganese is expected to be 8% higher than our initial estimate as market conditions for manganese remain strong. At Cannington, the stress regime is evolving as the orebody is being depleted and we are moving to more challenging areas within the mine plan. In order to deliver greater predictability and stability in the underground mine as the level of activity increases (80 stopes to be extracted in FY19, average of 50: FY12-16), we are lowering the mining rate to 2.45 Mt per annum which is expected to translate to mill throughput of 2.3Mt and 2.4Mt in FY18 and FY19, respectively. FY18 production guidance and our forward plan for Illawarra Metallurgical Coal remains unchanged. We will run a single longwall at Appin for the remainder of FY18 as part of a staged ramp-up of activities, before targeting a return to a twin longwall configuration in the December 2018 quarter. We will provide FY19 production guidance for Illawarra Metallurgical Coal with our FY18 results to reflect the completion of our annual planning cycle.

Illawarra Metallurgical Coal guidance update

Saleable production of 4.5Mt (3.35Mt metallurgical coal, 1.15Mt energy coal) is now projected for Illawarra Metallurgical Coal in FY18 at an operating unit cost of USD130/t . Production will be weighted to the second half of FY18 given the recent outage at the Appin colliery.



The company expects to return the Appin colliery to its prior two longwall configuration in the December 2018 quarter, after which we intend to ramp-up Illawarra Metallurgical Coal production safely and sustainably towards historical rates of more than 8Mtpa.



Sustaining capital expenditure for Illawarra Metallurgical Coal is now expected to be USD120M in FY18 (previously USD150M) .

South32 announced that it has approved the 4.3 billion South African Rand (USD301 million) Klipspruit Life Extension project (KPSX) at South Africa Energy Coal. Development activity is expected to commence in the current quarter with first coal expected from the open-cut operation in FY19.
27-Nov-2017
(Official Notice)
South32 announced that it will manage South Africa Energy Coal (SAEC) as a stand-alone business from April 2018 and invest 4.3 billion South African Rand (USD301 million) to extend the life of its Klipspruit colliery by approximately 20 years.



SAEC requires ongoing investment to sustain production and meet its take or pay rail and domestic supply obligations. To sustainably improve its financial performance, we will restructure SAEC and manage it separately from the rest of the Group with tailored functional support, systems and governance processes. This change will also allow the Group to further simplify the way it manages its global portfolio.



Once SAEC has been established as a stand-alone business and consistent with our objective to further transform our South African operations, we will commence a process to broaden ownership of SAEC. This will present opportunities for Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment entities, employees and communities, and could lead to a listing of SAEC on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange.



SAEC will continue to be consolidated in the Group?s financial statements on a 100% basis until there is a change in control.

(Official Notice)
South32 announced a USD500M capital management program, in the form of an on-market share buy-back to be conducted during the period 11 April 2017 to 10 April 2018. This was determined to be the most efficient mechanism available to return cash to shareholders at that time. To date, 105.8M shares have been purchased for a cash consideration of USD211M (AD2.66 per share).



South32 is pleased to announce that the capital management program has subsequently been increased to USD750M. South32 intends to buy-back shares during the period 11 April 2017 to 10 October 2018 (inclusive) or earlier if the maximum number of shares for which the total buy- back consideration paid reaches USD750M. The Company reserves the right to suspend or terminate the buy-back at any time.



The changes relating to the on-market buy-back (Appendix 3D) is lodged on the Australian Securities Exchange and voluntarily disclosed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange and London Stock Exchange by way of submission to the National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available for inspection at: http://www.hemscott.com/nsm.do

(C)
Revenue (Group production) for the year jumped to USD6.2 billion (2016: USD5.2 billion). Profit was recorded at USD1.8 billion (2016: loss of USD1.4 billion), while profit attributable to ordinary equity holders of South32 came to USD1.2 billion (2016: loss of USD1.6 billion). Furthermore, headline earnings per share from continuing operations was recorded at US23.1 cents per share (2016: headline loss of US3.4 cents per share).



Dividend

The board resolved to pay a fully franked final dividend of US6.4 cents per share in respect of FY17, equating to 50% of Underlying earnings in the June 2017 half year.



Outlook

South32 produces strong financial results and increases returns to shareholders. The combination of our high operating leverage and stronger commodity prices delivered a substantial increase in financial performance. Free cash flow more than tripled to USD1.9B and we finished the year with a net cash balance of USD1.6B. South32 announced a fully franked final dividend of USD334M, representing 50% of Underlying earnings in the second half and increased our capital management program to USD750M, which is 6% of our market capitalisation. Our aluminium smelters and refineries operated at their maximum technical capability and Mozal achieved record production. We adjusted production in our manganese business to take advantage of higher prices, consistent with our focus on value over volume. A review of our operating systems and practices at Illawarra Metallurgical Coal is continuing and we are working towards a staged and controlled ramp-up of operations at our Appin colliery, commencing in September. Looking to the year ahead, we will continue to unlock value within our existing operations, embed future options where we see value and stretch performance in a sustainable way."

20-Jul-2017
(Official Notice)
South32 released their quarterly report for June 2017.



Highlights

- Record performance at Mozal Aluminium underpinned a 2% increase in total aluminium production in FY17 as our smelters continued to operate at their maximum technical capability.

- Refined alumina production was largely unchanged in FY17 as Worsley Alumina operated at its expanded capacity of 4.6Mtpa (100% basis) in the June quarter.

- Manganese ore production increased by 5% in FY17 as South Africa Manganese continued to take advantage of stronger demand and pricing by maintaining an operating rate of 3.6Mwmt pa (100% basis) in the June quarter.

- Cannington recorded a significant decrease in ore grades and metal production in FY17 as high grade stope 60L was only partially extracted in the June quarter and run-of-mine stocks were consumed to support processing rates following a fire in April.

- Challenging ground conditions in the new Appin Area 9 longwall block and two extended outages at the Appin colliery led to a 15% decrease in Illawarra Metallurgical Coal production in FY17, despite record run-of-mine performance at Dendrobium.

- Adverse weather and an associated delay in the development of new mining areas at the Wolvekrans-Middelburg Complex (WMC) led to a 9% decrease in South Africa Energy Coal production in FY17, despite a sequential improvement in performance in the June quarter.

- While the publication of South Africa?s Mining Charter III has created additional uncertainty, its implementation has been suspended pending a judicial review. We remain committed to the country?s transformation agenda, with Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) entities having a 26% [Note 1] equity interest in our South Africa Manganese mines and an 8% [Note 2] equity interest in our South Africa Energy Coal mines, which increases significantly when historic asset transactions are taken into account.

(Official Notice)
South32 Ltd. advises that underground operations at the Appin colliery, which forms part of its broader Illawarra Metallurgical Coal operation, remain suspended. A review of the operation?s systems and operating practices is currently being undertaken to ensure its ongoing safety and reliability. Given the scope of this review, an extended outage is now anticipated before production at Illawarra Metallurgical Coal can be restored to historic levels. The Dendrobium mine continues to operate.



29-Jun-2017
(Official Notice)
South32 advised that on 28 June 2017 they withdrew the Appin workforce from the mine as a precautionary measure. South32 subsequently confirmed that there was no gas exceedance or breach of gas limits. South32 notified the New South Wales Department of Planning and Environment (the Regulator) of the details of the withdrawal. The Regulator then issued a prohibition notice and expressed broader concern regarding the recent gas exceedance events and the operating practices of the Illawarra Metallurgical Coal operation. Safety is a core value and South32 are working, together with the Regulator, to address these issues.



Separately, South32 confirm that the Dendrobium mine remains in operation and that production guidance for FY17 remains on track with Illawarra Metallurgical Coal having produced 7.05Mt (sales 7.32Mt) to 28 June 2017. Consistent with past practice, South32 will provide production guidance for FY18 when South32 report our financial results on 24 August 2017.

10-May-2017
(Official Notice)
South32 advised that production at Illawarra Metallurgical Coal in FY17 is expected to be at least 10 per cent below prior guidance of 7.9Mt. On 7 May 2017 elevated gas concentrations were recorded at Appin Area 7. All personnel were safely evacuated.

Production at the Area 7 and Area 9 longwalls, which form part of the broader Illawarra Metallurgical Coal operation, has been suspended until our investigation into the incident is completed. A revised production forecast for FY17 will be provided in due course, with the decrease expected to translate directly to sales given low inventory levels. A commensurate increase in unit costs is also anticipated.
28-Apr-2017
(Official Notice)
South32 released a quarterly report for March 2017.

The Daily share buy-back notice (Appendix 3E) lodged on the Australian Securities Exchange and voluntarily disclosed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange and London Stock Exchange has today been submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available for inspection at www.hemscott.com/nsm.do:



*South32 Ltd. ? Daily share buy-back notice - Appendix 3E



Further information on South32 can be found at: www.south32.net.



18-Apr-2017
(Official Notice)
South32 Ltd. announces that the proposed acquisition of the Metropolitan Colliery and associated 16.67% interest in the Port Kembla Coal Terminal from an Australian subsidiary of Peabody Energy Corporation will not proceed.



On 23 February 2017, the ACCC issued a Statement of Issues, concerned that the proposed acquisition may substantially lessen competition in the supply of metallurgical coal to Australian steelmakers.



South32 has always maintained that metallurgical coal is a globally traded commodity. Given this, South32 is not prepared to make significant concessions in favour of Australian steelmakers that would likely be required to mitigate the competition concerns. To do so would be contrary to the global market in which metallurgical coal producers compete and would adversely affect the value proposition of the acquisition.

06-Apr-2017
(Official Notice)
South32 advised that mining extraction at Cannington has been temporarily impacted by an underground fire that damaged the load-out and shaft haulage infrastructure. Remediation work will be undertaken over a four week period and extraction of the higher grade (silver/lead) stope 60L will be delayed.



Based upon its initial assessment, payable silver, lead and zinc production of 16.5Moz, 135kt and 70kt, respectively, is now anticipated in FY17 with revised mill throughput of approximately 3.1Mt (previously 3.3Mt). An update, including revised unit cost (including Sustaining capital expenditure) guidance, will be provided in the March 2017 Quarterly Report.



As noted in the December 2016 half year results announcement, production guidance at Cannington remains predicated on the ability to extract higher grade ore in close proximity to the existing underground crusher.
27-Mar-2017
(Official Notice)
South32 announced that it intends to return an additional USD500 million to shareholders, equating to 4.5% of the Group?s current market capitalization. This capital management program, which complements the Group?s dividend policy, will initially take the form of an on-market share buy-back in Australia.



The timing and number of shares purchased under the on-market share buy-back will be contingent upon the prevailing share price and market conditions. The on-market share buy-back is not subject to shareholder approval and will be funded from existing cash reserves. The Announcement of Buy-back (Appendix 3C) lodged on the Australian Securities Exchange and voluntarily disclosed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange and London Stock Exchange has been submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available for inspection at: www.hemscott.com/nsm.do.



The USD500 million capital management program is expected to be completed over a 12 month period and all alternatives will continue to be assessed to ensure this capital is returned in an efficient manner.

(Official Notice)
South32 Ltd. announces that the board has resolved to pay an interim dividend of USD3.6 cents per share (unfranked) for the half year ended 31 December 2016 (record date 10 March 2017; payment date 6 April 2017). The Notification of Dividend (Appendix 3A) lodged on the Australian Securities Exchange and voluntarily disclosed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange and London Stock Exchange has been submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available for inspection at: www.hemscott.com/nsm.do.

19-Jan-2017
(Official Notice)
19-Dec-2016
(Official Notice)
South32 advised that saleable coal production of 7.9Mt is anticipated at its Illawarra Metallurgical Coal operation in FY17, including 3.6Mt in H1 FY17. While ground conditions at the Appin Area 9 longwall have stabilised, additional work is being undertaken to recondition the maingate roadway to ensure the safe extraction of the 901 panel. At Appin Area 7, production continues to be progressively ramped-up to ensure safe levels of gas are maintained.



As a result, Illawarra Metallurgical Coal sales of 8.1Mt are now anticipated in FY17, while our average realised hard coking coal sales price will continue to reflect the premium low volatile index on a Month -1 (prior month) basis. On the basis of unchanged assumptions for foreign exchange rates and coal prices, an average Operating unit cost (including Sustaining capital expenditure)1 of approximately USD86/t is now anticipated for Illawarra Metallurgical Coal in H1 FY17 (previously USD75/t). This cost is forecast to decline towards USD80/t in H2 FY17 (previously USD71/t) for an average Operating unit cost (including Sustaining capital expenditure) of USD83/t in FY17.



With the completion of the 901 panel and the associated release of ground stresses, a strong improvement in longwall availability and cutting rates is anticipated in FY18 with total saleable production forecast to exceed 9.0Mt. Consequently, Operating unit costs (including Sustaining capital expenditure)1 are forecast to decline towards approximately USD77/t given the operation?s high fixed cost base. Restated FY17 production guidance incorporates a longwall move for each of the March and June 2017 quarters. To allow comparison to prior guidance, the various unit cost estimates do not take account of currently elevated coal prices, which increase royalty rates, and changes in the Australian dollar to US dollar rate, which has remained persistently above 0.72. FY17



Operating unit cost, including Sustaining capital expenditure, guidance for our upstream operations will be updated when we report H1 FY17 financial results and will incorporate revised foreign exchange rate and price assumptions.

(Official Notice)
South32 advised that it has entered into a binding agreement to acquire the Metropolitan Colliery and associated 16.67% interest in the Port Kembla Coal Terminal (PKCT) from an Australian subsidiary of Peabody Energy Corporation (Peabody).



Transaction highlights

- Agreed offer includes fully funded, cash consideration of USD200M and a mechanism whereby both companies will share commodity price upside in the first year of production, or on a minimum 1.3Mt, should metallurgical coal prices exceed an agreed forward curve;

- Integrates a well-capitalised, underground operation that adds an average 1.9Mtpa of saleable metallurgical coal production; - Leverages our regional model and marketing capability; and

- Unlocks unique blending and resource synergies, including the potential development of our CCL724 mining lease, which contains a 71Mt Coal Resource adjacent to the Metropolitan Colliery.
31-Oct-2016
(Official Notice)
South32 announced that production at its Illawarra Metallurgical Coal operation will be affected by the temporary suspension of its Appin Area 9 longwall and lower rates of production at the Appin Area 7 longwall. A saleable production loss of approximately 500kt is currently anticipated and will translate directly to sales given low inventory levels.



The Appin mine received a prohibition notice from the New South Wales Department of Industry, Resources and Energy on 26 October 2016, having reported elevated gas concentrations at Appin Area 7. Longwalls 7 and 9 were subsequently suspended to enable an investigation to be completed. The elevated gas concentrations resulted from the failure of a ventilation fan which was promptly rectified.



Having restarted the longwall at Area 9, it became apparent that the outage exacerbated challenging ground conditions and production has now been suspended to complete remedial work. These works are expected to be completed within four weeks and this outage accounts for the majority of lost production. In addition, the Appin Area 7 longwall will run at a reduced rate before ramping up to full capacity once the necessary tests confirm that we can maintain methane gas concentrations at a safe level.

South32 released their quarterly report for September 2016. Highlights include:

- Net cash position increased by USD239 million in the September 2016 quarter to USD551 million.

- Production and unit cost guidance remains unchanged for the majority of operations.

- Strong domestic demand underpinned a 2% increase in South Africa Energy Coal production, while an expected decline in ore grades and scheduled maintenance led to a 9%, 7% and 5% reduction in nickel, silver and zinc production, respectively.

- Restarted production in 22 pots at South Africa Aluminium as power availability continued to improve and the operation maintained leading rates of current efficiency.

- Illawarra Metallurgical Coal sales of 9.3Mt now expected in FY17 as the operation has recovered from challenging ground conditions at Appin and inventory has been reduced by 300kt.

- Illawarra Metallurgical Coal?s unit cost guidance of USD71/t (including sustaining capital expenditure) now expected to be achieved in the June 2017 half year, with costs to be USD4/t higher in the December 2016 half year given the operation?s high fixed cost base.

- South Africa Manganese mines now operating at the optimised 2.9Mwmt pa rate (100% basis) following the decision to stop work at the Wessels underground mine in June 2016.

South32, as 60% owner and manager of the Samancor Manganese Joint Venture, advises that the joint venture?s South African mines will remain closed until the completion of the ongoing strategic review. Production was suspended following a fatality at the Mamatwan mine on 2 November 2015.



As a major employer in the region, the planned reconfiguration of the Samancor Manganese mines in the Kalahari basin is required to secure their longer term viability in an increasingly competitive market. The current stakeholder consultation process is continuing and mining activity is likely to recommence in January 2016.



While production will be significantly impacted in the 2016 financial year, rail and customer commitments will be met by drawing down inventory during this period. A further update for the joint venture?s South African manganese mines and Metalloys smelter will be provided upon completion of the strategic review.



Samancor Manganese is the world?s largest producer of manganese with operations in South Africa and Australia. Its Australian operations include GEMCO, an open-cut manganese mine in the Northern Territory, ranked as the largest and one of the world?s lowest cost manganese ore producers, and TEMCO, a manganese alloy plant in Tasmania. The joint venture?s African operations include the Hotazel Manganese Mines located in the Kalahari Basin in South Africa?s Northern Cape Province, a region that holds 80 per cent of the world?s manganese resource endowment. Its African operations also include Metalloys, a smelter that is integrated with the Hotazel Manganese Mines, creating an alternative logistical route for manganese into the export markets.

South32 advised that the United States Department of Commerce has issued a notice of a preliminary anti-dumping determination, setting a 11.93% rate for imports of Silicomanganese of Australian origin into the United States, of which TEMCO is a producer.



The Department of Commerce will continue its investigations and is expected to make a final determination in 2016. The United States International Trade Commission is expected to commence its final injury investigation. TEMCO intends to defend its position.



South32 is disappointed with the imposition of these preliminary measures and will review its options. The preliminary finding does not impact South32?s manganese ore operations in Australia and South Africa, which accounted for 95 per cent of Underlying Earnings Before Interest and Tax (EBIT) generated by the manganese business in FY15.



TEMCO is a manganese alloy plant located in Tasmania, Australia and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of GEMCO, which is 60 per cent owned by South32.



South32 is committed to the development of transparent and fair markets in which it sells its products.

Demerger background

In August 2014, BHP Billiton announced a plan to demerge a selection of the Group?s non-core assets to create an independent company, subsequently named South32. At the BHP Billiton shareholder general meetings on 6 May 2015, shareholders approved the demerger, with the demerger resolution achieving 98.05 per cent in favour.



Through the demerger, eligible BHP Billiton shareholders will receive one ordinary share in South32 for each ordinary share in BHP Billiton held at the applicable record date.

It is the responsibility of BHP Billiton shareholders to determine their entitlements prior to trading in



South32 to avoid the risk of selling South32 ordinary shares they do not own. BHP Billiton shareholders selling South32 ordinary shares before they receive confirmation of their entitlement do so at their own risk.
