Mincor board prepares for takeover

Sandvik Mining and Barrick Gold have extended their global framework agreement to enhance their long-term partnership.

New directors for Mincor as Wyloo takes over, while Core Lithium bolsters its executive team and finds a new home.


Mincor Resources has announced the appointment of John Hartman and Luca Giacovazzi as directors of the company, replacing Brett Lambert and Michael Bohm who effectively resigned yesterday.

The shift comes in light of Wyloo Metals takeover of Mincor. The company now owns over 90 per cent of Mincor shares and is set to proceed with a compulsory acquisition of Mincor.

The takeover bid for Mincor was first launched on March 21 and is worth $760 million, with a price of $1.40 per share. Since first bidding, the Mincor board has encouraged its shareholders to accept the offer.
