Canada’s Eldorado Gold said Tuesday has completed the sale of its 82% stake in the Chinese Jinfeng mine to a wholly-owned subsidiary of China National Gold Group for US$300 million in cash.
“Jinfeng mine is expected to generate 95,000-105,000 ounces of gold this year, as the operation transitions fully into the underground.”

The move marks the Vancouver-based miner exit from China, as the company announced earlier this year it was also selling its other three operations in the country — White Mountain, Tanjianshan and Eastern Dragon — for US$600 million in cash. That deal is expected to close before the end of the year, Eldorado said in the statement.

The transactions, said the company’s president and CEO Paul Wright, will add “meaningful value” to Eldorado and further strengthen the firm’s financial flexibility to advance its internal project pipeline.

Jinfeng produced 149,655 ounces of gold in 2015 and is expected to generate 95,000-105,000 ounces of gold this year, as the operation transitions fully into the underground.

Eldorado Gold, which also has operations in Turkey, Greece, Romania and Brazil, said it would use the money obtained from its Chinese mines to “continue to grow” the business based on “long-lived, low-cost assets.”
