Nickel mine sale falls through

A proposed sale of the mothballed Avebury Nickel Mine has fallen through. Mine owner MMG, which had entered a purchase deal with Avebury Nickel Mines Ltd, said the final $32.5 million needed to seal the acquisition had not been paid by a cut-off date on 30 June. A sale and subsequent restart of mining had been expected to generate 200 jobs.
