Osisko Closes Financing On Victoria Gold’s Project
Monday April 16, 2018 09:33
Osisko Gold Royalties Ltd. (TSX, NYSE: OR) says it has completed the previously announced C$148 million financing with Victoria Gold Corp. (TSXV: VIT), in which Osisko received a 5% net-smelter-return royalty for C$98 million on the Dublin Gulch property, which hosts the Eagle gold project, in Canada’s Yukon. Osisko also purchased, on a private-placement basis, 100 million common shares of Victoria at 50 Canadian cents each. “The addition of the Eagle royalty strengthens our Canadian asset base and adds near-term Canadian gold to Osisko’s growth profile from a fully permitted, fully-financed and shovel-ready project located in Yukon, a premier mining jurisdiction,” says Sean Roosen, chair and chief executive officer of Osisko.
