Australian exploration assets sold
The company has recently completed a binding sale and purchase agreement with Aurenne Group Holdings Pty Ltd to sell its Australian exploration assets to the Sydney-based private gold mining company for $2.5 million cash.
Assets sold to Aurenne included the Bulong South, Glandore and Cowarna gold projects, as well as the Cannon Gold Mine within Bulong South, which is currently on care and maintenance.
The sale process was managed by PCF Capital Group and involved several stages of bidder selection due diligence and commercial negotiation.
