SSR Mining Inc. completed the previously announced plan to acquire all of the shares of Taiga Gold Corp. in a transaction valued at C$30 million ($23.9 million). With this transaction, SSR has consolidated a 100% interest in the Fisher property contiguous to its Seabee mine in Saskatchewan, Canada, and eliminated a 2.5% net smelter return (NSR) royalty on the Fisher property.

This transaction also added five new properties covering more than 29,100 hectares (72,000 acres) to complement the company’s existing exploration platform in Saskatchewan. SSR Mining’s Saskatchewan assets now cover an area of approximately 131,150 hectares (324,000 acres).
