    BHP Billiton (BHP): H2 profit before items -35% to $7.16B vs. consensus of $6.96B. Abandons $20B Olympic Dam copper expansion and will look at a "less capital intensive option." Won't approve any new projects until at least mid-2013. It's the biggest sign of how China's slowdown has stalled the global mining boom. (PR)

    More on Freeport McMoRan (FCX): This can be a tough business sometimes as costs don't pay attention to the price of the metal being mined: Q1 cash costs $1.26/lb. vs.$0.79 a year ago, costs for 2012 expected to be $1.43. Earnings off 49% Y/Y. Shares +1% premarket. (PR)
