Glass Earth Gold, the miner whose shares trade on the NZAX and Canada’s TSX Venture Exchange, has bought out joint venture partner in Otago for $4 million.
The company purchased the 50 percent shares of Dunstan Mining it didn’t already own and 100 percent of the shares in Goldmines New Zealand, Glass Earth said in a statement. The JV related to its mining and exploration project in Otago.
Glass Earth will pay $500,000 cash immediately, $1.5 million by June 11, and a further $2 million over a 25-month period from July.
“Taking full control of the placer mining activities will significantly accelerate and increase production capacity,” the company said.
The company said it expects a significant increase in gold output in 2012.
The stock was unchanged at 50 cents in trading today.
In 2011 the gold explorer made a loss of C$670,000 in the three months ended Sept. 30, taking its loss for the first nine months of its year to C$993,000. The joint venture in Otago contributed cash of C$85,000 for the three months, up from C$61,000 in the same quarter last year.
