SYDNEY, June 25 -- Chinese copper producer Zijin Mining <2899.HK> <601899.SS has terminated its A$545 million takeover offer for Australia's Indophil Resources <IRN.AX>.

The mine is slated to start in 2016 but is under threat from a ban on open pit mining in South Cotabato province over environmental concerns.
