SSR Mining Divests SilverCrest Equity Position for C$90 Million of Gross Proceeds






SSR Mining Inc. (NASDAQ: SSRM) (TSX: SSRM) is pleased to announce that it has completed an on-market transaction to divest 9,000,645 common shares of SilverCrest Metals Inc. (TSX:SIL) (NYSE American: SILV) at a price of C$10.06 per share for gross proceeds of approximately C$90 million. Following the transaction SSR Mining does not hold any SilverCrest shares.    


Paul Benson, President and CEO of SSR Mining said, “This has been a great outcome for both companies’ shareholders. We secured a pre-tax gain of C$55 million on our investment of C$35 million over an 18-month period, while our equity investment helped fund SilverCrest’s exciting project and strengthen their balance sheet. I would like to thank Eric Fier and his team for the tremendous job they have done advancing the high-grade Las Chispas project to this stage.”
