(Reuters) - Australia's Lynas Corp Ltd on Wednesday said it would not engage with conglomerate Wesfarmers on its "highly conditional" $1.1 billion (£832 million) takeover approach for the only proven producer of rare earth elements outside China.

Wesfarmers on Tuesday made a buyout offer of A$2.25 per Lynas share.
