Swedish mining and smelting group Boliden will buy Finnish mine Kevitsa from First Quantum Minerals for $712-million, Boliden said on Thursday, betting on prospects for higher metal prices in the longer term. Boliden said the mine, a source of nickel, copper, gold and platinum, was a good operational and geographic fit and would yield savings in its Nordic operations.
