JPMorgan’s Gregson Says Miners Should Seek M&A on Costs - "JPMorgan Asset Managment’s Neil Gregson, manager of about $6.9 billion in natural-resource assets, says mining companies should chase more takeovers as rising costs force them to slow spending on expansions.

“These companies that are curtailing capex should be, I’m sure they are, more active in making opportunities of the low valuations,” London-based Gregson, who counts Xstrata Plc (XTA) and Rio Tinto (RIO) Group among his top holdings, said in an interview in London yesterday. “We’d certainly support a lot more M&A.”

BHP Billiton Ltd. (BHP) and Rio Tinto, the first and third- biggest mining companies by sales, said last month they’ll ration spending because of escalating costs and waning global economic growth. The Bloomberg World Mining Index (BWMING) has lost 18 percent this year. First Quantum Minerals Ltd. (FQM), African Minerals Ltd. (AMI) and London Mining Plc are likely acquisition targets, Jefferies Group Inc. said June 8." More
