Newcrest Mining will acquire a 27.1 per cent stake in Canada’s Lundin Gold at a cost of $US250m ($A319m). However, the deal imposes restrictions on Newcrest’s ability to lift its stake above 32 per cent, making a takeover bid difficult in the near-term. Lundin’s assets include the Fruta Del Norte gold project in Ecuador, a country to which Newcrest already has exposure via its stake in Solgold. The Fruta Del Norte mine is slated to commence production in late 2019.
