MELBOURNE Jan 23 China's MMG Ltd has
held talks recently on a possible sale of its Avebury nickel
mine in Australia, and hopes a jump in nickel prices following
an Indonesian export ban could boost the sale price, its chief
financial officer said on Thursday.
"We've had people talk to us recently and in the past," CFO
David Lamont said on a conference call following the release of
the group's quarterly production report.
"Certainly we would hope as a result of that (bump up in
nickel prices) we may find a sensible buyer for that operation,"
