In accordance with the agreement, Magna Gold will issue 9.74 million common shares in the capital of the company, representing approximately one-fifth of the issued and outstanding common shares. In addition, $5 million in cash will be paid after a year from the finalization of the deal.

Arturo Bonillas, President and Chief Executive Officer of Magna noted that the acquisition of the Mexican mine is a pivotal moment in the company’s evolution to become a leading gold producer in Mexico. He expressed confidence in the company’s ability to re-establish the mine as a profitable one. The acquisition will help to generate value for its shareholders in the immediate and long-term, Bonillas added.

Further to closure of the acquisition, Magna will implement a mine operational improvement plan, which will be supported by either a preliminary economic assessment or feasibility study.
