:: Mozal Expansion Project Produces First Aluminium

BHP Billiton, on behalf of the other shareholders of Mozal, the Government of Mozambique, the Industrial Development Corporation of South Africa and Mitsubishi Corporation of Japan, announces that first aluminium was cast at the expansion project at the Mozal aluminium smelter near Maputo in Mozambique on 7 April 2003.

Approved in June 2001, the expansion project will double the output of the smelter from 253 000 tons per year to 506 000 tons per year of primary ingots. Full production is expected to be reached in the fourth quarter of 2003. First metal production has been achieved more than five months ahead of schedule and the cost to completion is expected to be well below the budget of US$860 million.
