(Kitco News) - Otso Gold (TSX.V:OTSO) announced on Monday that it has executed a subscription agreement with Brunswick Gold for a strategic investment of US$11 million into the company.

On completion, the proposed financing will fully fund the company to enable it move forward in line with the company’s previous press releases including the company’s planned return to production at the Otso gold mine, located in Finland.

On completion of the financing, the company intends to immediately restart its detailed directional diamond drilling program to inform a robust geological model and detailed mine plan that will be used to move to production in 2021.

CEO Brian Wesson commented, “We are excited to welcome Brunswick Gold to the company as a partner.
