Dec. 6 (Bloomberg) -- KGHM Polska Miedz SA’s plan to buy Canada’s Quadra FNX Mining Ltd. is an “interesting idea,” Maciej Wewior, a spokesman for the Treasury Ministry, said by phone today.

The ministry, KGHM’s biggest shareholder with a 32 percent stake, will look “closely” at the transaction, Wewior said.

KGHM, Poland’s sole copper and silver producer, has already received all necessary approvals from its corporate structures, Dariusz Wyborski, a spokesman for the company, said by phone today.
