According to a recent Reuters report, Mitsui Mining and Smelting is set to sell its 0.97% stake in Chile’s Collahuasi copper mine, paving a path towards its exit from the copper mining sector.
The stake is reportedly being sold to Mitsui & Co as part of an asset reshuffle.
The financial details relating to the deal have not been released, apart from the fact that the sale would result in a one-off gain of 9.5 billion yen (US$87.5 million) for the current financial year.
The sale is due to be completed by the end of this month.
