Osisko Metals (OM) is exercising its option to acquire the Gaspé Copper project from Glencore Canada Corporation.

Located near Murdochville in the Gaspé peninsula of Québec, the project boasts a 3 billion lb resource.

This gives the company an option to acquire a 100 per cent interest in the Gaspé Copper mine, having made an up-front payment of US$25 million through issuing a convertible note to Glencore. In addition, the company will make a cash payment of US$20 million when commercial production begins.

The company’s CEO, Robert Wares stated that Gaspé Copper was a significant copper producer in Eastern Canada for more than 40 years, and his team believes in the potential to unlock value from this asset through drilling and re-evaluation of remaining resources.

“The successful closing of this transaction will give Osisko Metals shareholders significant copper exposure and make Glencore a major shareholder of the company.”

Completion of the acquisition remains subject to closing conditions, such as TSX Venture Exchange approval.

Osisko Metals is a Canadian exploration and development company.

Osisko Metals Inc. (OM) is down 5.41 per cent, trading at C$0.35 per share at 12 pm ET.
