Hm. Mate might work, but it's so rare in American English to use it conversationally, so I think it depends on who you're talking to. In American English, mate is usually part of a compound word, like classmate, but used by itself as a noun, it typically means the person you will have children with and it sounds odd and stilted. If I hear an Australian say mate, I know he means friend. So again, I think it depends on the person to whom you're talking. Let's see if some Australians will help us out on that one.
