Australia's Newcrest sees Lihir deal by September

SYDNEY, June 8 (Reuters) - Newcrest Mining (NCM.AX) said on Tuesday it has finished due diligence on rival Lihir gold LGL.AX and expects to complete the $8.4 billion deal by September.

It added that Lihir should now stop any discussions with third parties.

At least four of the world’s biggest gold producers have looked at the books of Lihir but Newcrest was seen as the only bidder, people familiar with the situation said on Monday. [ID:nSGE65604N] (Reporting by Narayanan Somasundaram; Editing by Balazs Koranyi)
