Osino Resources has completed the acquisition of two remaining minority interests in the mineral properties comprising the Twin Hills gold project, in Namibia for a total consideration of N$14.6 million.

Osino completed the acquisition of the remaining 10% of the shares in the capital of Osino Namibia Minerals Exploration (ONME) for N$11.5 million (C$870 000), settled through the issuance of one-million common shares of the company to Ominda Mineral Resources, which is arm’s length to Osino.

Richwing was 80% owned by Osino and holds an EPL which hosts gold mineralisation and industrial minerals south of the Twin Hills project area.

Osino now owns 100% of Richwing.

Osino also expects to close an additional minority interest acquisition of 3% of the shares in the capital of Osino Gold Exploration and Mining (GEM) as previously announced in August.

Upon completion of this acquisition, Osino will own 100% of Osino GEM.

It expects to complete the acquisition of Osino GEM within a few weeks, as the acquisition is subject to approval by the TSX Venture Exchange.
