David Wolfin, President and CEO, stated: “The sale of Robertson to Barrick, and the potential for long-term royalty income down the road, represents a major turning point for Coral and its shareholders. Coral is evolving quickly with a fresh business model and strategy, looking to capitalize on our experience, knowledge and relationships in Nevada, particularly on the Cortez gold trend. As Robertson is advanced to production, Coral’s NSR could be become a very valuable asset for Coral shareholders and provide continued economic benefits.”

Rob Krcmarov, Barrick Gold Corporation’s Executive Vice President, Exploration and Growth, stated: “We are excited to add Robertson to our pipeline of projects at the Cortez property. Consolidating ownership of the Robertson project will allow us to realize synergies with the Cortez operation, benefitting both Barrick and Coral shareholders as the project advances.”
