Argonaut Gold Completes Sale of Ana Paula Project in Mexico






Argonaut Gold Inc. (TSX: AR) is pleased to announce that it has completed the sale of the Ana Paula Project to Heliostar Metals Limited.  As per the purchase agreement announced on December 5, 2022, Argonaut has sold 100% of Ana Paula for US$10 million payable in cash upon closing, plus an additional US$20 million in deferred cash and share consideration, contingent on meeting certain milestones. Ana Paula is a non-core asset located in Guerrero, Mexico.


“As we refocus our portfolio, the sale of this non-core property is consistent with our capital allocation strategy of investing in our assets that have the potential to generate the highest returns and drive free cash flow growth,” stated Richard Young, President and CEO of Argonaut Gold.


The sale of Ana Paula was accomplished through the sale of all issued and outstanding shares of Aurea Mining Inc. a wholly-owned subsidiary of Argonaut, which through Aurea Mining’s wholly-owned subsidiary Minera Aurea S.A. de C.V., holds a 100% indirect interest in and to Ana Paula.
