Global Mining Review,

Acacia has agreed to divest a non-core royalty over the Houndé mine in Burkina Faso for total consideration of US$45 million.

The existing 2% net smelter royalty has been owned by Acacia and its predecessor companies since 2010. Following a competitive process the royalty has been purchased by Sandstorm Gold Ltd, a TSX- and NYSE-listed company.
