UPDATE 1-Lundin says Aguablanca output to resume in 2012

TORONTO, March 16 (Reuters) - Lundin Mining (LUN.TO) said on Wednesday that operations at its Aguablanca mine in Spain will not resume until 2012, after heavy rains caused a landslide at the nickel-copper mine in December.

    At the time, the Canadian base metal miner said it would suspend operations pending a technical investigation.

    Lundin said it plans to perform stabilization work at the site this year, in an effort to guarantee the operation’s viability and safety.

    Toronto-based Lundin said the mine accounts for only 2 percent of its net asset value. The company had not included any output from Aguablanca in its 2011 production outlook. (Reporting by Euan Rocha; editing by Rob Wilson)
