  • Marius Kloppers, CEO of BHP Billiton since 2007, has recently announced his plans to shelve the massive expansion of the Olympic Dam copper mine in South Australia, a decision influenced by BHP’s long-term commitment to maintaining its A-rated credit status by ‘living within its means’. However, the $4.5 billion expansion of Chile’s Escondida copper mine is going ahead and its copper-molybdenum mine in Arizona will restart by the end of 2012. Is he being too cautions?
