Under the deal, the company has provided a syndicate of underwriters with an over-allotment option to purchase an additional 1,256,250 common shares within 30 days of the closing of the offering.

The company plans to use the proceeds to fund royalty and stream acquisitions and other general corporate purposes.

Fortune Minerals has signed a deal with the owners of the Revenue Silver Mine (RSM) to purchase remaining stake in RSM.

The company, along with its wholly owned subsidiary, Fortune Revenue Silver Mines, has purchased an initial 12% stake in RSM in May this year and has been operating the mine since then.

Under the latest deal, Fortune Minerals can buy the remaining stake by paying $15.5m, with a condition to pay a further $10m after closing the transaction, which has been extended from 2 September to 1 October.

The project will use A$64m ($59.6m) of Emeco's fleet in Chile and represents more than 50% utilisation for the business unit.

For Chilean business, Emeco has so far deployed more than A$100m ($93.1m) of fleet and an average 80% utilisation.
