211991603 - 1_qu8htwrr - PID 1851201 Hello I am Ted Dixon with your INK morning report preview for December the 13th. Has Kinross set a spark under junior mining? On December 8th, Kinross Gold announced a friendly takeover bid for Red Lake Gold District junior miner Great Bear Resources. Kinross has agreed to pay $29.00 per Great Bear common share in a mixture of cash and Kinross stock, plus contingent value rights. Embedded in the deal is an $85 million termination fee payable by Great Bear if, among other things, the deal is terminated in connection with Great Bear pursuing a competing offering. That had Discovery Watch’s John Kaiser er wondering who else might potentially be interested in Great Bear, and he noted that Barrick Gold had recently executed earn-in agreements with two neighbouring juniors. You can find Discover watch on Canadian Insider. Meanwhile the Kinross price has been slumping and so has that of Barrick Gold on the back of an exhausted gold price and we note that Insiders at Barrick were buying last month. For those who agree with Mr. Kaiser that the geopolitical back drop is about to become more supportive of gold, the gold mining group just got a lot more interesting. Well that is it for today, and I hope to see you again tomorrow as we let the insiders guide us to opportunity into year-end.
