European stock indexes closed higher on Tuesday, with the exception of the U.K.'s benchmark FTSE 100, which was knocked by the weak performance of mining stocks.
The pan-European STOXX 600 index closed 0.5 percent higher, with most sectors in positive territory.
The notable underperforming sector was basic resources, which ended down 2.9 percent. Miners were the worst performing stocks in the basic resources index, with Antofagasta, Randgold Resources, Glencore, Rio Tinto, Fresnillo and BHP Billiton all ending more than 3 percent lower.
As a result, the FTSE 100, which is heavily weighted towards basic resource companies, ended provisionally down 0.2 percent underperforming its continental peers.
