Anglo American Plc (AAL) said Codelco placed a value of about $400 million on undeveloped land it will transfer from its Sur unit to the Chilean state-owned company as part of a deal to settle claims.

Anglo placed nominal commercial value on the mining tenements, Peter Whitcutt, group director of strategy and business development, said on a conference call with reporters today. Anglo will pay $318 million in tax on the overall deal announced today, spokesman James Wyatt-Tilby said by phone.
