The final $5m instalment will be given after March 31st 2013, once another scoping study and 5,000 metres of infill drilling at the project is finished.
John Theobald, Chief Executive Officer of Anglo Pacific, said: "We are extremely pleased with the acquisition of the royalty on the Dugbe 1 gold project, the third royalty financing we have announced this year. The acquisition enables Anglo Pacific to further diversify its royalty portfolio by strengthening our focus on precious metals, which we believe will offer considerable long term revenue growth and cash flows for the Company and its shareholders."
