Charles Russell Speechlys advised TSX Venture Exchange listed mining company Hunt Mining Corp. on its recommended offer for AIM listed Patagonia Gold plc, by way of a court approved Scheme of Arrangement.

Farris LLP advised Hunt Mining Corp. and Cassels Brock & Blackwell LLP advised Patagonia Gold plc on Canadian law and each of Strand Hanson Limited, Stephenson Harwood LLP and Andrew Thornton of Eskine Chambers acted for Patagonia Gold as Financial Adviser, UK solicitors and UK counsel respectively.

Corporate Partner Paul Arathoon said: “We are delighted to have assisted Hunt Mining Corp. on its acquisition of Patagonia Gold plc. We look forward to watching Patagonia Gold Corp. develop as a TSX-V listed company”.

The Charles Russell Speechlys team included corporate partners Paul Arathoon and Adrian Mayer and corporate associate Emily Dobson.
