JOHANNESBURG, June 23 (Reuters) - Canadian miner Banro Corporation has agreed to sell its Namoya Mining gold mine in Democratic Republic of Congo to a consortium of investors including Baiyin International Investment Ltd and Shomka Resources Limited, it said in a statement on Tuesday.
Banro will receive a perpetual royalty for all production from the Namoya property in eastern Congo, it said. The deal is subject to final approval from Congo’s government.
Banro told Reuters in February it was looking to sell Namoya at a significant discount, after repeated attacks by militia forced the company to suspend operations at several mine sites. (Reporting by Helen Reid, Editing by Louise Heavens)
