Glencore Plc shares headed for the biggest weekly decline since the company went public in 2011 as the selloff in mining shares showed no signs of slowing.

Glencore slid 5.9 percent on Friday, bringing losses for the week to 17 percent. Vedanta Resources Plc, an Indian miner of copper, aluminum and zinc, dropped 10 percent for the biggest retreat in the FTSE 350 Mining Index. Anglo American Plc and Antofagasta Plc sank more than 4 percent.
