Seligdar and RosGeo started second junior project in Yakutia

PJSC Seligdar (hereafter Seligdar) and JSC Rosgeologia (hereafer RosGeo) started realisation of the second joint junior project aimed at expansion of the Seligdar’s reserve and resource base in accordance with the agreement signed earlier at St Petersburg International Economic Forum.

In terms of joint exploration of the Khokhoy ore field deposit in Aldan region of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), Seligdar purchased from RosGeo for RUB 40 million a 75% share of Khokhoy LLC – owner of the license for geological survey of the above named gold ore deposit. The parties also concluded an option agreement, which makes possible an increase of Seligdar’s share in Khokhoy up to 100% after the mineral reserves have been placed on the State Balance Sheet.

Seligdar will provide operatorship for the joint venture as well as funds for exploration. RosGeo will conduct all exploration works at the licensed site and will have an opportunity to provide geological support of the deposit development. Field works at the Khokhoy ore field deposit will start in August 2021.

Seligdar and RosGeo launched earlier another junior project in Aldan region of the Republic of Sakha at the Chulkovskaya area deposit where prospecting and estimation works have begun.

Besides, the parties cooperate at two other Seligdar’s sites where RosGeo works under the contractor agreement:

  • Exploration at Kiriestekh in Aldan district of the Republic of Sakha;
  • Estimation at the Semenovskaya area deposit of Krasnoschelkovskiy district of Altai region.
