EL TENIENTE MINE Jan 10 (Reuters) - Ongoing port strikes in Chile have blocked around 20,000 tonnes of world No.1 copper producer Codelco's red metal, Chief Executive Officer Thomas Keller said on Friday during a mine visit.

The state company has not had to buy copper to meet contracts, as these allow for flexibility, Keller added.
