    • Sibanye Gold (NYSE:SBGL) agrees to acquire the Rustenberg platinum mining and concentrating operations in South Africa from Anglo American Platinum (OTCPK:AGPPY, OTCPK:AGPPF) for at least 4.5B rand ($331M).
    • The deal involves an upfront payment of 1.5B rand, with a minimum deferred payment of 3B rand, equal to 35% of cash flow generated by the operations, making 20B rand the maximum potential value of the deal.
    • The sale allows Amplats, which had considered separately listing the mines, to focus on shallower, lower cost and more mechanized operations as platinum prices fall to multi-year lows.
    • For SBGL, the deal will boost future cash flow to pay dividends if the miner can lower costs and raise production as has happened at four aging gold mines.
    • SBGL +3.9% premarket.
