As a new Financial year commences, Ramelius Resources have announced an offer for Musgrave Minerals. Directors of Musgrave have unanimously recommended that the offer be accepted in the absence of a superior offer. This comes after Musgrave was the target for Westgold Resources last week.
The offer by Mark Zeptner`s Ramelius is 1 Ramelius share for every 4.21 Musgrave shares held plus an additional $0.04 in cash per Musgrave share held. This is secured by around 12.13 % in pre bid acceptance. The Managing Director said the company is looking to develop the Musgrave Cue project “Subject to the Offer being successful, Ramelius is looking forward to continuing drilling across the tenement package to expand the existing resource and ultimately developing the Cue Project into a high-grade satellite mine for the Mt Magnet production centre, to maximise value for all shareholders.” Zeptner said.
While the value for shareholders was prime for Musgrave Minerals Managing Director Rob Waugh “We are confident that the Cue Project will be in good hands should the Offer be successful and in the event that does occur, we would look forward to seeing the project contribute to the ongoing success of Ramelius’ Mt Magnet operations. By joining with Ramelius, Musgrave shareholders will have the opportunity to continue to share in the upside at the Cue Project while accessing the benefits that come with being an owner of an established, profitable mining company. The cash component of the offer provides additional certainty.”
