    Water around Rio Tinto's Madagascar mine is high in lead, uranium - study

    Water downstream of a Rio Tinto mine in southern Madagascar contains high concentrations of uranium and lead, potentially endangering local residents who depend on a nearby lake and river for drinking water, a study released on Friday found. Lead, when ingested, can impede the mental and physical development of children, while uranium can cause kidney damage. The study commissioned by southern Madagascar-focused British environmental charity The Andrew Lees Trust found that concentrations of uranium were 350 times higher downstream of the QIT-Madagascar Minerals (QMM) mine than upstream of it, and that lead concentrations were 9.8 times higher.

    First Quantum shares jump after Jiangxi Copper buys investment unit

    Shares of Canada's First Quantum Minerals Ltd rose as much as 5% to their highest since May on Monday after China's Jiangxi Copper Co Ltd agreed to buy a unit of the Canadian miner's largest shareholder for $1.1 billion. State-backed Jiangxi Copper said on Monday it would buy Cupric Holdings Ltd from investment company Pangaea Investment Management Ltd. Pangaea is First Quantum's biggest shareholder, owning 17.6% stake, according to Refinitiv data. The move adds to speculation about First Quantum amid heightened expectations for deals in copper, seen as a critical ingredient in low-carbon technologies.
