BHP Billiton have been in the industry for over 150 years & are among the largest producers of major commodities such as aluminium, copper, coal, iron ore, silver & branching out into oil & gas.

They have over 100 locations throughout the world & employ more than 100,000 employees & contractors.

BHP's history of Broken Hill Proprietary, started out in a silver, lead & zinc mine in the town of Broken Hill in 1885. Billiton started in 1960, a tin mine on Billiton (Beltung) Island in Indonesia. Both companies grew over the years expanding into other commodities, with Billiton being a major producer of aluminium,& ilumina, chrome & other minerals & BHP lead the way in discovery, development, production & marketing natural resources such as iron ore, copper, diamonds & zinc.

So when the two companies merged as one in 2001 they became one of the largest resources companies in the world. With a new logo introduced & the company listed on the AXS & LSE, they started operations all over the world.
