Chinese miner snaps up Continental Gold

Tuesday, December 3, 2019

China's Zijin Mining Group has agreed to buy Canadian miner Continental Gold Inc for $1 billion, but a top executive with the target company said increased security concerns in Colombia pose a risk to the deal.

The offer by state-backed Zijin for Continental aims to secure Continental Gold's flagship Buritica gold project in Colombia.
