UK Stocks-Factors to watch on Tuesday

    Aug 1 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 index is seen opening 38 points
higher at 7410.3 on Tuesday, according to financial spreadbetters.
          
    * ACACIA: The Tanzanian government and Barrick Gold have started
talks to resolve a tax dispute involving the Canadian company's subsidiary
Acacia Mining, the president's office said on Monday.
    * BHP: BHP Billiton on Tuesday denied commentary in a
Brazilian newspaper that it has agreed to sell its stake in the Samarco iron ore
mine to its partner Vale.
    * GOLD: Gold prices held steady near seven-week highs early Tuesday, after
registering their biggest monthly gain in five in July, supported by a slump in
the U.S. dollar and political uncertainty. Spot gold was nearly flat at
$1,269.30 per ounce at 0358 GMT. It rose 2.2 percent last month, its biggest
monthly gain since February.
    * COPPER: Copper has finally emerged from its extended winter hibernation,
breaking out of an eight-month trading range to hit two-year highs. London Metal
Exchange three-month copper broke through the top of that range at
$6,200 last Tuesday and hasn't looked back since. This morning it touched $6,430
per tonne, a level not seen since May 2015.
    * UK ECONOMY - British businesses are their least optimistic about the
economy in six months and their overall confidence levels remain slightly below
average, a survey showed on Monday, adding to a lacklustre outlook for the
economy.
     * Strong results from heavyweight bank HSBC helped British blue-chips hold
on to gains on Monday, putting the index ahead for the month of July, though
tobacco stocks tumbled further following a new U.S. regulatory clamp down. The
FTSE 100 rose 0.1 percent, and ended July 0.8 percent higher,
outperforming European benchmarks which finished the month in the red.
