In one of the largest recoveries ever in a dispute against a sovereign state, First Quantum Minerals has ended the international arbitrations and related proceedings surrounding its mining operations in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). The settlement was part of a sale by First Quantum of its residual claims and assets in the DRC to Eurasian Natural Resources Corporation (ENRC), for total consideration of US$1.25 billion. The deal closed on March 2, 2012.
