Reuters reported that Glencore has cleared the final hurdle that stood in their way of their takeover of Xstrata after they agreed to sell a $5.2 copper mine to ease their monopoly on the sector.

As quoted in the market report:

Under Tuesday’s deal, Glencore has three months to begin the process of selling Las Bambas, one of the group’s biggest development projects, and must find a buyer by the end of August 2014. The trader set a minimum price, however, as the mine will be sold at the higher of either a fair market price as established by two investment banks, or total costs incurred.
