    Southern Copper (SCCO +1%) says Q3 EPS fell 67% Y/Y to $0.26, reflecting softer global copper prices and a $316M charge for legal fees. Copper mine output was 486K tons in the first nine months of 2012, up 11.2% Y/Y. Copper fundamentals are "solid," chairman German Larrea says, adding "the world economies are getting prepared for a period of growth."

    Peru's biggest miners are expected to post strong Q3 earnings, but those results could be negatively affected by lower prices for their products and higher costs. Brokerage Inteligo sees Southern Copper (SCCO) posting a near-10% drop in net income, due to lower base metals prices and maintenance at one of its refineries. Lower net earnings also are expected at Buenaventura (BVN).

Global demand for refined copper is expected to grow 3.5%, or 675K metric tons, while copper supply will grow less than 1%.

    Peruvian protesters may want to consider shifting the focus of their anger (I, II): Local governments had 9.5B soles ($3.5B) from natural resources taxes collected over the last decade lying dormant in bank accounts as of December, according to a Reuters analysis - in provinces where the poverty rate often exceeds 60% despite a decade-long boom fueled by minerals exports.
