RPT-Trafigura says interested in bidding for Nyrstar's zinc deal
SINGAPORE, March 5 (Reuters) - Commodities trader Trafigura said on Tuesday it is interested in bidding for an exclusive deal to buy zinc from world No. 1 producer Nyrstar that may be worth about $700 million a year.
"Trafigura does (have) an interest in bidding for Nyrstar's zinc contract," a representative told Reuters in an e-mail.
Glencore, the current holder of an offtake deal for 350,000 tonnes a year of Nyrstar's European zinc, will scrap the agreement to win EU approval for its takeover of Xstrata .
