Feb 20 (Reuters) - Canadian base metal miner First Quantum Minerals Ltd reported lower fourth-quarter earnings on Thursday due to weaker metals prices.

The company, which mines copper, nickel and gold, said net earnings fell to $131.3 million, or 22 cents a share, in the three months through December from $186.7 million, or 39 cents, a year earlier.
