BHP Billiton

BHP Billiton is the world's largest mining company.

Its origin is in the 2001 merger of Australia's Broken Hill Proprietary Company (BHP) and the UK's

Billiton, which has a South African background.

The Broken Hill Proprietary Company or BHP was incorporated in 1885, operating the silver and lead mine

at Broken Hill in New South Wales.

Billiton's origins stretch back to September 1860, when the articles of association were approved by a

meeting of shareholders in the Groot Keizerhof hotel in The Hague, Netherlands.

BHP Billiton Limited and BHP Billiton Plc continue to exist as separate companies, but operate on a

combined basis as BHP Billiton
