Boom-to-bust Australian coal baron acquires Anglo American mine

Former Australian coal baron Nathan Tinkler has surfaced as a suitor for one of the first of many businesses Anglo American is trying to offload as commodity markets deteriorate.

Anglo American has agreed to sell its 83.33% interest in the Dartbrook coal mine in the Australian state of Queensland to Australian Pacific Coal. The mine has been mothballed since 2006.
