Aura Minerals Inc. announced that the board of directors of the BVI company approved the payment of an extraordinary dividend of CAD$4 million (CAD$0.92 per common share). The dividend will be paid to shareholders of record on January 6, 2020, as of the close of business on December 27, 2019.
By words of President and CEO of Aura Minerals Mr. Rodrigo Barbosa, this dividend is the result of company’s significant progress and operational performance achieved over the past two years. He said: “Our ability to sell the Serrote Project, merge with Rio Novo and ramp up the Aranzazu Mine, which reached close to full production in the third quarter of this year, allowed us to reward shareholders. With a strong foundation of high-quality assets and strong leadership, we remain focused on driving operational efficiencies and strong financial performance while developing the projects in our pipeline for continued growth in 2020.”
