Argonaut acted as Financial Advisor to Hanking Australia Investment Pty Ltd on the successful $37 million takeover of Primary Gold Limited in 2018. Hanking Australia Investment Pty Ltd is the Australian subsidiary of the Hong Kong-listed China Hanking Holdings Limited, a mine development and exploration company with assets in Australia and China. The Takeover of Primary Gold Limited is part of Hanking Australia Investment’s strategy to manage long-life gold exploration and mining assets. The Takeover Offer was structured adequately and was well received by existing Primary shareholders.
