BHP not ruling out further job cuts

BHP says it will not provide specific information about future changes to its business, but it hasn't ruled out making further job cuts.

Reuters reports BHP has reinforced the company line that while it can't provide detail on struggling portions of the business, cost cuts in some parts may continue.

"We don't intend to provide any detail about specific adjustments, but clearly there may be some impact on jobs in some areas," the company said.

BMA recently cut 100 employees from the contractor workforce at its Gregory Crinum coal mine in Queensland.

Rio Tinto has cut 70 contractors from its Kestrel-KME operation and Xstrata has signaled it will do the same.
