Newcrest Mining CEO Sandeep Biswas says more acquisitions are possible following an $US806.5m ($1.1bn) deal to acquire a 70 per cent stake in the Red Chris gold-copper mine in Canada. Red Chris is currently an open-cut mine, but it has the potential to yield significantly more gold and copper by using block caving. Newcrest is also widely considered to be a contender to acquire from Barrick Gold and Newmont Mining if their proposed merger proceeds.
