Cove Gold Project bought by Premier
Premier has bought the Cove Gold Project from Victoria.
Premier Gold Mines has completed its purchase of Victoria Gold Corporation's Cove Gold Project.
Business negotiations could have been utilised during the transaction, which involved Premier paying Victoria $8 million (£5 million), half of which was paid through the issuing of 892,857 common shares, with the rest paid in cash.
Furthermore, Victoria was reimbursed by Premier with a payout of $1,145,190, which covers 90 per cent of the costs related to the exploration and other related activities that took place on site between the closing of the acquisition and March 15th.
The mine is located in Nevada's Eureka-Battle Mountain Trend, with Premier also owning assets in the state's Carlin Trend, as well as Ontario's Red Lake, Geraldon and Musselwhite gold mining districts.
It predicts that this deal will consolidate its product portfolio in the US, with Nevada believed by the firm's management team to be one of the best places on Earth for the development of mines.
