Osisko Receives First Gold Shipment From Eleonore Royalty






Osisko Gold Royalties Limited (TSX:OR) is pleased to announce that it has received its first shipment of gold ounces from its royalty on the Éléonore Mine operated by Goldcorp. The advance royalty payment received by Virginia Mines has now been fully repaid.



Sean Roosen, Chair of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Osisko, commented: “We are delighted to receive our first gold shipment from our cornerstone Éléonore royalty and we would like to congratulate Goldcorp and the team at Éléonore for its ongoing efforts to bring the mine up to full design capacity. The delivery of these ounces marks a major milestone in the evolution of the Éléonore gold property, which was discovered due to the vision of André Gaumond and his Virginia team, now part of our Osisko team. Today, we are proud stakeholders and are proud that this vision has led to the Éléonore Mine becoming a significant contributor to the Québec and Canadian economies.”



Osisko owns a 2.0% to 3.5% NSR royalty in the Éléonore gold property located in the Province of Québec and operated by Goldcorp. The Éléonore Mine achieved first gold production on October 1st 2014 and subsequently declared commercial production on April 1 2015. As a reminder, Osisko did not receive any gold or silver ounces from Éléonore until a US$5 million non-interest bearing royalty advance payment was recovered from production of Éléonore by Goldcorp.
