IAMGOLD sells minority stakes in Ghana mines to Gold Fields, faces uncertainty in Burkina Faso

IAMGOLD (TSX: IMG) agreed to sell its 18.9-percent interests in two Ghanaian gold mines, Tarkwa and Damang, to Gold Fields (NYSE: GFI), the majority stakeholder,  for $667 million.

The company reasoned it hasn’t been getting fair value by investors as minority players in mines in which Gold Fields owns the majority stakes. “Our strategy is to invest in mines that we own and operate, as they represent the best return on investment for our shareholders,” Steve Letwin, IAMGOLD president and CEO said in a statement.
