Australia tax would raise prices--Gold Fields CEO

LIMA, May 18 (Reuters) - A proposed tax on Australian miners would drive up minerals prices, Gold Fields (GFI.N) Chief Executive Nicholas Holland said Tuesday at an industry conference.

The company is a leading gold miner and the tax being considered in Australia would place a levy of 40 percent on profits. (Reporting by Patricia Velez and Eduardo Garcia; Editing by John Picinich)
