  • B2Gold (BTG +1.6%) agrees to sell Volta Resources, the holder of an 81% interest in the Kiaka gold project in Burkina Faso to West African Resources (OTCPK:WFRSF), in a cash-and-stock deal valued at more than $90M.
  • According to the deal terms, after an initial $450K payment, $45M will be payable on the closing of the Kiaka deal, comprised of 50% cash and 50% in WAF shares; $45M payable on the start of construction at the Kiaka project or completion of a positive feasibility study at Kiaka.
  • The deal also includes 2.7% net smelter return royalty interest on the first 2.5M oz. of gold produced at Kiaka and a 0.45% NSR royalty interest on the next 1.5M oz.
  • B2Gold recently raised its full-year gold production guidance following higher than expected Q3 output.
