Mineral Resources (MIN) has dropped its takeover for Aquila Resources, leaving the target's board to recommend the $1.4bn bid by rivals Baosteel and Aurizon to shareholders.

Mineral Resources recently purchased a 12.78% stake in Aquila and subsequently held discussions about an all scrip off-market bid for remaining Aquila shares at a proposed price of $3.75 per share.
