Reuters UK reported Anglo American (LSE:AAL) is considering selling its stake in the Ampapa iron ore operation in Brazil.

As quoted in the market news:

Anglo bought control of the Amapa operation in 2008, as part of the $5.5 billion (3.5 billion pounds) Minas-Rio acquisition deal with Brazilian billionaire Eike Batista’s MMX.
