Horizon Minerals Limited (ASX:HRZ) Divestments Update

Horizon Minerals Limited (ASX:HRZ) is pleased to advise that the divestment of the Gunga West gold project near Coolgardie has been completed.
As announced to the ASX on 20 June 2022, the Company agreed to divest its 100% interest in the project to FMR Investments Pty Ltd (“FMR”) on the following terms:
Deposit of $100,000 in cash
$300,000 in cash on completion
Access to FMR’s Greenfields toll mill in Coolgardie on commercial terms for ore treatment of 200,000 tonnes
All conditions precedent including provision of signed transfers, all mining information and statutory consents have now been completed, and the $300,000 completion cash payment received. The delay in completing this transaction has been due to obtaining third party consents.
Horizon can also confirm the $400,000 consideration in relation to the Option and Sale Deed executed with Metal Hawk Limited (“Metal Hawk” or “MHK”) announced on 5 July 2023 has been paid, with the $200,000 in cash received, and $200,000 in MHK shares issued, with the number of shares determined by the 20-Day VWAP prior to execution of the deed. The MHK shares are escrowed for a period of 6 months.
The Company has received several expressions of interest regarding the potential divestment of further non-core assets in the northern and eastern Kalgoorlie regions. These expressions of interest are currently being considered by the Company and further details will be provided to the market in line with our continuous disclosure obligations.
Commenting on the divestments update, Chief Executive Officer Grant Haywood said:
“We are continually reviewing our extensive portfolio in the WA goldfields. The sale of these projects is in line with our strategy of monetising our assets through either divestment of non-core assets or bringing them into production as we have successfully demonstrated in the past. The funds received advances our exploration and mine development strategy, reduces holding costs and distraction, and enables increased focus on our core projects.”
