Peruvian miner Minsur plans to put in $300m worth of fresh equity capital into its Cumbres Andinas subsidiary, it says, to help finance the acquisition of a stake in the Marcobre copper project. After the transaction, Minsur will hold 99.96% of Cumbres’ shares. It is already seeking a $200m loan to help with the purchase. In April, Minsur agreed to acquire 70% of Marcobre from Hong Kong’s CST Mining for $505m.
