Glencore Xstrata plc Key Developments

Glencore To Divest Its Interest In Tampakan Project; Indophil Expresses Interest

Glencore Xstrata plc (LSE:GLEN) is planning to sell its Tampakan project, operated by Sagittarius Mines, Inc. Indophil Resources NL (ASX:IRN) has expressed interest in acquiring full ownership of Sagittarius Mines. Gavan Collery, Vice President for Corporate Affairs of Indophil, said that Indophil is in an advantageous position to buy Glencore’s stake in the project should this arrangement materialize because they have the right of first refusal in the possible stake sale. Gavan said that discussions for the possible acquisition of Glencore’s stake would be discussed after the completion of the sale of the Las Bambas mine. Collery said, "The Las Bambas outcome has been a long time in the making and is important for Glencore as it fulfills the conditions set by China and once completed, clears way for Glencore to deal with other greenfield copper assets including its share in Tampakan."
