Creating a Path to Sustainable Development and Growth
In a landmark move that promises to reshape the landscape of precious metals production and exploration, Silvercorp Metals Inc. and OreCorp Limited have jointly announced a binding scheme implementation deed.
Under this agreement, Silvercorp will undertake the acquisition of all fully-paid ordinary shares of OreCorp not held by Silvercorp or its associates.
This strategic maneuver, executed within the framework of an Australian scheme of arrangement under Part 5.1 of the Corporations Act 2001, holds significant potential for both companies and the industry at large.
Transformative Transaction and Strategic Vision
A Leap Towards Global Leadership
With a compelling vision at its heart, the transaction is set to redefine the precious metals landscape. The proposal involves OreCorp shareholders receiving A$0.15 in cash along with 0.0967 of a Silvercorp common share (equivalent to A$0.45), culminating in a comprehensive offering valued at A$0.60 per OreCorp Share.
The result is an integration of resources and expertise, giving rise to a diverse, highly profitable precious metals entity. This venture is primed to harness a pro forma market cap of US$630 million, unlocking new avenues for growth, innovation, and sustainable practices.

The alliance embodies a harmonious fusion of commercial prowess and ecological vigilance, harmonizing the imperatives of business growth with the imperative of safeguarding our natural heritage.
Through this transformative partnership, Silvercorp aims to leverage its technical acumen to propel the development of the Nyanzaga Gold Project in Tanzania.
This endeavor aligns seamlessly with the broader goal of sustainable, responsible mining, aligning with global calls for environmentally-conscious practices. The confluence of Silvercorp’s expertise and this conscientious approach promises to set a new benchmark for the mining industry’s role in a greener future.
Unlocking Value and Ushering in a New Era
