Barrick’s Bulyanhulu acquires six new prospecting licences in Tanzania

Bulyanhulu will acquire from MIPCCL a 100% interest in six prospecting licences held by MIPCCL. The licences are located in areas adjacent to the Bulyanhulu mine and have the potential to add significant mineral reserves to Barrick’s asset base in Tanzania, the company said in the statement.

Other contingent payments will be calculated based on the inferred, indicated and measured gold mineral resources identified, Barrick said.

Bulyanhulu is required to invest a minimum of $9 million in the licence Area over the course of the four years and has agreed to subscribe for, on a non-brokered private placement basis, 5,518,764 of common shares of Tembo for C$0.27 each. Closing is expected to occur in the first quarter of 2022.

Barrick chief executive Mark Bristow said the acquisition was in line with the company’s strategy of increasing its investment in new growth opportunities in Tanzania.

Barrick’s North Mara mine is on track to achieve 2021 production targets and to replace depleted reserves through brownfields exploration.

The company reports the production ramp-up at Bulyanhulu is gaining momentum with plant performance ahead of expectations and recoveries at a consistent rate of 93%
