Aug 20 (Reuters) - Australian miner South32 Ltd
reported an 80.5% slump in full-year underlying profit on
Thursday, as prices and demand for its key products were
battered by the Sino-U.S. trade war and the COVID-19 pandemic.
The world's biggest producer of manganese said underlying
net profit was $193 million for the year ended June 30, compared
with $992 million a year earlier.
It announced a final dividend of 1 cent per share, down from
2.8 cents last year.
