Pucarana S.A.C. has signed the final agreement with Compañía de Minas Buenaventura S.A.A. (“Buenaventura”; NYSE:BVN) on May 22, 2015.
Under the agreement, the Pucarana joint venture grants Buenaventura the right to explore and develop the Pucarana gold property which is adjacent to Buenaventura’s operating Orcopampo (Chipmo) Gold Mine in the department of Arequipa, Peru. In return, Buenaventura grants a 3% NSR royalty to the joint venture which is then divided amongst the partners Alamos Gold Inc. (60%), Alianza (36%) and Gallant Minerals Ltd. (4%). Buenaventura also agreed to pay certain past property holding costs and will be responsible for all of the property costs going forward.
Alianza now holds a net 1.08% NSR and and is entitled to receive 1.08% of the revenues from any gold production from the Pucarana mineral claims, net of smelter costs.
