In a statement, Pembridge said the gold in the Minto streaming agreement will be worth as much as US$8.5m over the next 12 months.
“The support from Wheaton should significantly assist cash flow as the Minto mine ramps up production,” said Pembridge’s chief executive and chairman Gati Al-Jebouri.
Pembridge has a gold offtake deal with Sumitomo that sees it receive 90% of revenue on a monthly basis, while the final 10% payment is sent once the deliveries reach Japan.
Minto is an open pit and underground copper-gold-silver mine in central Yukon, 240Km north of the capital Whitehorse.
Separately, Pembridge added it had settled with former CEO David Linsley the amounts contractually owed to him in cash plus 2,427,806 shares, which will be issued when they re-list on London’s Standard market.
