Pinson sale closes
Atna Resources Ltd. of Golden, Colo., has completed its previously announced acquisition of the Pinson Gold Mine in Humboldt County.
It acquired a 70 percent interest in the mine that it didn’t previously own from a subsidiary of Barrick Gold Corp.
Sprott Resource Lending Partnership provided a $20 million (Canadian) secured loan to finance the cash portion of the deal and provide Atna with capital to begin developing the project.
“The thing that I like most about entrepreneurship is I can work toward something that I’m passionate about and be at the forefront of the change that I want to see happen,” said Priyanka Senthil, a senior at Davidson Academy in Reno and co-founder of startup company AUesome.
