Pan African Resources says negotiations ongoing for planned Evander gold mine buy

Pan African Resources (LON:PAF) told investors that the financial effects of the planned acquisition of the operating Evander gold mine from Harmony Gold (LON:HRM) are still being determined.

The outcome may have a material effect on its share price, and Pan African advises shareholders therefore to continue to exercise caution when dealing in its stock until a further announcement is made.

The group had issued similar statements advising caution in November and December last year while mentioning unspecified ‘negotioations’ regarding a transaction.

Then, at the end of January, it announced it was planning to buy the Evander mine for £139 million in a 50/50 consortium with Wits Gold.

The deal is expected to increase Pan African’s gold production profile from 95,000 to around 140,000 ounces a year.

The Evander operations are in Mpumalanga, South Africa, and comprise the operating Evander 8 shaft, and several significant development projects namely Rolspruit, Poplar, Evander South, Libra, a surface tailings resource and the Kinross metallurgical processing plant.

The total underground resource represents 32.5 million ounces and a reserve of 7.6 million ounces.

The Evander 8 shaft currently has an expected life of mine of more than ten years.
