Brazil's Vale denies postponing sale of New Caledonia mine stake

BRASILIA, Nov 20 (Reuters) – Brazil's Vale SA in a securities exchange filing on Monday denied that it had decided to postpone the sale of a stake in the New Caledonia nickel mine, saying it is continuing to look for a partner.

Reuters reported on Friday, citing sources, that the mining major would postpone the sale for up to a year after initial bids for the assets came in at the lower end of expectations.
