SANTIAGO (Reuters) – Canadian fertilizer giant Nutrien <NTR.TO> will auction its 23.77 percent share in Chile´s SQM <SQMa.SN> on Dec. 3, the Chilean stock exchange said on Wednesday, a final step toward completing the sale of a coveted stake in the world´s No. 2 lithium producer to China´s Tianqi <002466.SZ>.

In a statement, the local stock exchange said the minimum bid would be set at $65 per share, for a total package price of $4.066 billion.

China’s Tianqi said in May it would buy nearly a quarter of SQM from Nutrien.
