Dundee Precious Metals’ shares fell sharply after it struck a deal to buy Osino Resources for roughly 287 million Canadian dollars ($214.5 million) in a move that will add a long-life open-pit gold project and exploration sites in Namibia to its portfolio.

In Monday morning trading, the Canadian gold mining company’s shares were 8% lower at C$8.98, narrowing the advance so far this year to 38%. Osino’s shares were up 27% at C$1.44, for a year-to-date gain of 69%.

Dundee said it will buy the Canadian gold exploration company for C$0.775 in cash plus 0.0801 of a Dundee share for each Osino share, implying a value of C$1.55 a share, a 27% premium to the last closing price. In all, Dundee plans to issue 13.8 million shares to Osino’s shareholders, who will end up owning about 7% of the combined company.

Osino’s flagship development is the Twin Hills gold project in central Namibia. Dundee said it plans to advance remaining engineering activities for Twin Hills to reach a construction decision by the third quarter of next year.
