FAS approved the sale of 13% of Bystrinsky GOK to China

​The Government Committee for strategic investment has approved the deal on the purchase of about 13% of the Bystrinsky gold-copper-iron ore deposit by the Chinese investors, the head of FAS, I. Artemiev, said on the results of the meeting of the Committee.
In late December 2015 Norilsk Nickel announced of the sale of 13.3% in the Bystrinsky GOK for $100 mln to the consortium of Chinese investors Highland Fund. Highland Fund comprises the Hopu fund which previously focused on the Udocan deposit of A. Usmanov but preferred the Bystrinsky GOK as a project close to be put into operation.
Chinese investors may act not only shareholders but industrial partners of the Bystrinsky GOK signing the off-take contract for its products, Norilsk Nickel hopes.
After the completion of the deal on the sale of 13.3% an increase of the stake of Highland Fund to 20% is possible. The long-term plans comprise the listing of the increased (by means of the Baim deposit of Millhouse) Bystrinsky project in the Chinese stock exchange, the President and owner of Norilsk Nickel, V.

"Norilsk Nickel" promises to strengthen the copper market in 2015.

In their forecast on future copper market the analysts of MMC "Norilsk Nickel" state that copper was under pressure throughout 2014. The negative trend was mainly due to the concerns of investors over a slowdown in the Chinese economy, as well as the emergence of market expectations of a significant surplus of copper caused by the design capacity of new large projects in South America, Africa and Asia. Strengthening of the US dollar relative to the "commodity" currencies increased the negative trend, confirming the stability of the inverse correlation between the US dollar index (DXY) and the price of copper. Finally, falling oil prices triggered a withdrawal of investors from passive commodity funds, which was an additional negative factor in the price of the red metal. In early 2015 the price of copper continued to decrease under the influence of heightened concerns about the level of demand from China and the strengthening of the US dollar.
