David Garofalo, CEO, President, and Chairman of Gold Royalty, comments:
“We are excited to be partnering with Jean-Marc Lacoste and the strong technical team at Monarch to assist in the reopening of the Beaufor mine and to add additional high quality royalties to our portfolio. These assets will not only add potential near term cash flow to our company, but also a strong pipeline of development and exploration projects located in Quebec, a very favourable mining jurisdiction. The Monarch royalties nicely complement the pro-forma portfolio of over 100 royalties in the Americas resulting from our previously announced acquisition of Ely Gold Royalties Inc.”
