Antofagasta Minerals Mulls Acquisitions

Antofagasta Minerals S.A. is on the lookout for acquisition opportunities but they are few and far between, Chief Executive Officer, Diego Hernandez said. "Like everyone else, we're looking at acquisition opportunities, but there aren't many on the market. The reason is that the industry, at least copper, is in good shape, with prices still in good shape, so no one wants to dispose of assets. For acquisitions, prices are high, so it's still better to build than to acquire," he added.
