Chile Escondida Q1 copper output up 2.1 pct yr/yr

SANTIAGO, May 30 (Reuters) - Output from the world's largest copper mine, Chile's Escondida, rose 2.1 percent in the first quarter, versus a year ago, to 240,215 tonnes, pushed up by a jump in its cathode production, it said in a statement on Wednesday.

Escondida, which is majority owned by global miner BHP Billiton , did not give a reason for the higher output figure.
