Yukon-Nevada Gold Corp. Initiates Strategic Review; Shares Soar On Talk Of Sale
Yukon-Nevada Gold Corp. is a North American gold producer in the business of discovering, developing and operating gold deposits. The Company holds a diverse portfolio of gold, silver, zinc and copper properties in the Yukon Territory and British Columbia in Canada and in Nevada in the United States.
The Jerrit Canyon property in Nevada, the company’s primary asset operated by its subsidiary Queenstake Resources USA, also has two mills – a dry roasting and a wet mill for processing oxide ore.Mr. Ecclestone named Barrick Gold Corp. ABX-T and Newmont Mining Corp. NEM-N as likely contenders.Both have large stockpiles of unprocessed ore and Jerrit Canyon can boost their production, he said.“Yukon-Nevada processes a lot of ore for Newmont. If it doesn’t step up now and make a bid for Yukon-Nevada and if the mill goes to someone else, then that wouldn’t be in Newmont’s favour,” Mr. Ecclestone said.Yukon-Nevada received a letter from the Federal Mine Safety and Health Administration last December, saying the mill was found to be in violation of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act, 1977.In March, the MSHA removed the mill from the violator’s list.Yukon-Nevada, which also owns silver, zinc and copper assets in Yukon and British Columbia, has hired Deutsche Bank Securities and RBC Capital Markets as financial advisers.READ FULL REPORT:[ yukon-nevadagold.com/s/NewsReleases ]Source: [ theglobeandmail ]
