The China National Gold Group Corp announced plans to sell one of its gold mines amid falling prices for the commodity.

The listed price for a 100 percent stake in the Guangxi Fengshantiancheng Gold Mine Co Ltd is 180 million yuan ($29.29 million) and the company's debt of 149 million yuan will be met by CNGC, the parent company said in a statement.

The purpose of the move is to adjust developing strategy and optimize resource allocation, CNGC said. It's estimated that the transaction will result in a loss of 38.05 million yuan.

Due to the slumping gold price, CNGC has suffered market-value losses of more than 13.4 billion yuan, since April.
