Talvivaara reports quarterly loss

Finnish miner Talvivaara slumped to a third quarter loss of €4.3m (£3.4m) it said yesterday, down from a €5.5m profit the year before, as the company battled issues at its Sotkamo mine. Talvivaara’s output has been hit by heavy rainfall this year, and last week it had to shut the Sotkamo plant due to a waste water leakage.
