Reaching an agreement with Santa Cruz Silver Mining Ltd. (Santa Cruz), Glencore has announced its plans to sell its Bolivian zinc assets for US$110mn to the mining and metals company. As part of the agreement, Santa Cruz will acquire the holding companies that own Glencore’s Bolivian zinc assets (Sinchi Wayra and Illapa). 

Subject to customary working capital adjustments, Glencore will initially receive US$20mn on the completion, followed by a further US$90mn which will be paid within four years or less from completion (subject to certain market standard mandatory and early prepayment provisions).

Glencore will also retain offtake rights for life of mine in respect of the production from the relevant mines.”
