South32 completes $1.3bln deal to buy Arizona Mining

South32 Ltd has completed the acquisition of Arizona Mining, building further on the Perth, Australia-headquartered zinc portfolio at a time of relatively limited greenfield mine supply.

The $1.3 billion cash deal was announced in June, when South32 said it would buy out the remaining 83% stake in Arizona Mining that it did not already own.
The junior miner operates the Hermosa project near Tuscon, Arizona, which contains the high-grade base metals Taylor deposit, the Central zinc, manganese and silver oxide resource and an extensive land area with potential for discovery of polymetallic and copper mineralization.
