Aug 1 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 .FTSE index is seen opening 38 points higher at 7410.3 on Tuesday, according to financial spreadbetters.

* ACACIA: The Tanzanian government and Barrick Gold ABX.TO have started talks to resolve a tax dispute involving the Canadian company's subsidiary Acacia Mining ACAA.L , the president's office said on Monday.

BHP: BHP Billiton BHP.AX BLT.L 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 XAU= 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 CMCU3 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 .FTSE rose 0.1 percent, and ended July 0.8 percent higher, outperforming European benchmarks which finished the month in the red.
