Back in February, diversified mineral investment company Bushveld agreed to facilitate a change in the ownership of one of Vametco’s BEE partners.
Jaxson, led by investment professional Bill Chipane, has bought the stake from a consortium led by Avacap for US$655,000, all of which has been vendor financed by Bushveld.
The transaction takes place just a couple of months after Bushveld acquired a 78.8% stake in Strategic Minerals Corporation from Evraz Minerals for US$16.47mln.
“We are delighted to announce, now that all the conditions have been satisfied, that the Jaxson 640 transaction Bushveld supported and vendor financed is now complete,” said chief executive Fortune Mojapelo.
“We are pleased to have the Jaxson 640 team and the local land-owners and communities, who are beneficiaries of this transaction, as our partners at Vametco and look forward to working with them in future.”
