Red 5 buys two gold mines

Red 5 has struck agreements to buy Gold Fields' Darlot mine and Saracen Mineral Holdings' King of the Hills mine for a combined $34 million in cash and shares.

Saracen told the market this afternoon it had received $7 million in up-front cash and 90 million Red 5 shares in exchange for the asset, plus a further $4.5 million in either cash or shares.

As part of the deal, Saracen will sub-underwrite $1.5 million out of a $12.7 million rights issue that Red 5 is undertaking. South African miner Gold Fields is underwriting $8.5 million of the raising. It will be priced at 5 cents a share.
