    • Nevsun Resources (NYSEMKT:NSU) agrees to acquire Reservoir Minerals (OTCPK:RVRLF) for ~$365M in cash and stock, valuing Reservoir at ~C$9.40/share.
    • NSU says the combination creates a diversified mid-tier base metals company with a cash producing operating asset in Bisha, a high grade open pit copper-zinc mine, and 100% ownership in the upper zone of the Timok copper project in Serbia.
    • The deal allows Reservoir to exercise its right of first refusal on Freeport McMoran's stake in the Timok project, ending Lundin Mining's (OTCPK:LUNMF) previously announced acquisition of the stake.
