    DETAIL
    Aluminum Corp of China (CHALCO), the country's biggest producer of alumina and primary aluminium, posted profits of 330 million yuan ($49.4 million) during the first half of the year, the highest level in almost five years.

    The company attributed its excellent performance largely to reduced production costs. Costs of electrolytic aluminium, alumina and electrolytic copper fell 400 yuan, 2,500 yuan and 5,200 yuan per tonne, respectively, said Yu Dehui, general manager of CHALCO.

    Although prices of the three products dropped year on year during the first half, the company managed to improve profitability.
