Independence in Fraser Range JV with Orion

Gold and nickel miner Independence Group has expanded its presence in the Fraser Range after entering into an agreement to farm-in to Orion Gold’s tenements in the area for an initial $2 million in cash and scrip.

Independence will acquire an initial 70 per cent stake in Orion’s wholly-owned tenements, a 60 per cent interest in tenements Orion already holds in a JV with prominent prospector Mark Creasy, and a 65 per cent interest in a tenement held between Orion and Geological Resources.

It will pay $700,000 in cash and acquire $1.3 million Orion shares at a premium of 2.4 cents each to acquire the stakes.
