“We are excited to see the launch of Osisko Development has already garnered a great deal of enthusiasm in the investment community,” said Sean Roosen, Chairman and CEO of Osisko Development.
“This private placement contribution will help achieve our vision of building on the rich past of the Cariboo Gold Project that began in 1860 into the prominent mining district it is becoming with each new drill hole,” he added.
Osisko Development was launched in late November from the spin-out of assets held by Osisko Gold Royalties and the reverse-takeover of TSX Venture Exchange-listed Barolo Ventures.
Under the terms of the deal, Osisko Gold Royalties transferred the properties to Barolo Ventures along with a portfolio of securities valued at approximately $116 million.
Sean, who was Chairman and CEO of Osisko Gold Royalties at the time, transitioned to lead the new development-focused company, and was replaced by Sandeep Singh.
