Extract Resources Limited: A possible target for Rio Tinto

EXT Chart 09 Mar 2011.JPG




Reuters reported that shares of Extract Resources Limited (ASX:EXT and TSX:EXT) jumped on expectations it could become a target for Rio Tinto Limited after a Chinese bid approach for the uranium miner's top shareholder. Namibia-focused Extract is 43% owned by Kalahari Minerals Plc, which said it was in talks about a possible $1.23 billion takeover offer from a unit of China Guangdong Nuclear Power Holding Corporation. Rio Tinto owns 14% of Kalahari and is also a 14.2% shareholder in Extract and has long been seen as a suitor for Extract as the two companies have neighbouring uranium projects in Namibia. Rio Tinto declined to comment on Kalahari's announcement that it had been approached with an offer of GBP2.90 per share and would recommend the offer to shareholders if a formal bid was made on the proposed terms.

On a sort of unrelated topic, anyone notice that virtually ALL Uranium and rare earth stocks have been getting the sh*t beat out of them these last three trading days? I've been looking to find out the cause of this, but have found nothing so far. Any help?

The spot price of uranium has dropped so that may account for part of the sell off.
