Vale concludes acquisition in the Copper Belt

Vale concludes the acquisition of exploration assets in the African copperbelt - by Vale - June 18th, 2009
Rio de Janeiro, March 24, 2009 - Companhia Vale do Rio Doce (Vale) announces that it has successfully completed the previously announced transaction which creates a 50:50 joint venture between Vale and African Rainbow Minerals Limited (ARM) for the future development and operation of the assets of TEAL Exploration & Mining Incorporated (TEAL), enhancing Vale’s strategic growth options in the copper business in Africa.
The transaction involved a series of steps, through which Vale has acquired a 50% interest in TEAL’s subsidiaries for CAD$ 81 million, and TEAL has been taken private by ARM at a price of CAD$3.00 in cash per TEAL share. As a result of this transaction, TEAL’s assets will be directly or indirectly owned by a newly-created joint venture company owned by Vale and ARM (50:50).
TEAL's trading on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) was suspended at the opening of trading today and its common shares will be delisted from the JSE on April 3, 2009. An application to delist TEAL’s common shares has been filed with the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) and the delisting is expected to be effective shortly. An application is expected to be filed shortly to allow TEAL to cease to be a reporting issuer under applicable Canadian securities laws.
We expect this new joint venture to add significant value to our shareholders over the medium to long term, since it enhances our global copper growth platform and contributes to the diversification of our asset portfolio, providing simultaneously geographic diversification into a region with the highest potential for mineral exploration in the world, the African copperbelt.

Re: Vale concludes acquisition in the Copper Belt

Pour votre information Teal était la zone d'exploration de Konkola North dont l'évaluation finale a été finit fin 2008.
Pour plus d'information sur les réserves de cuivre de Konkola North vous pouvez allé voir ce site :

Konkola’s resource is reckoned to be the country’s second largest, offering sound long-term prospects. A rapid development programme is planned with an annual ore extraction rate of 1.25 million tons envisaged using existing infrastructure yielding 25,000 tons of copper metal a year.

At this stage TEAL owns 100% of the Konkola project. However Zambia’s state-owned mining company — ZCCM has a 20% option on the project of which 5% is a “free carry”.
