MOSCOW, Jan 15 (PRIME) -- Russian gold producer Polyus has cancelled an agreement to sell a 10% stake to ChinaТs Fosun over the Chinese companyТs failure to fulfill terms of an option to buy 5%, the company said in a statement on Monday.

УPolyus, the largest gold producer in Russia, notes the announcement made earlier today by Polyus Gold International Limited that the agreement to sell 12,561,868 of the ordinary shares in the company to a consortium led by Fosun International Limited has been terminated,Ф Polyus said.
