Agincourt Resources Ltd has acquired the Martabe gold and silver 
project in Indonesia from Newmont Mining Corp for $US80.25 million 
($A106.79 million).

Perth-based Agincourt has announced that it had completed a $A150 
million equity capital raising to fund the acquisition, as well as a 
feasibility study and environmental approvals cost.

Martabe is an undeveloped project located in Sumatra with a resource 
of 5.3 million ounces of gold and 54.8 million ounces of silver 
hosted within a large epithermal system.

Agincourt said the acquisition price represents a gold equivalent 
resource price of less than $A18 an ounce.

Agincourt managing director Peter Bowler said the acquisition was a 
company transforming event.

"The 5.3 million ounces is only part of the story - there's a lot 
more immediate resources to add on in the very short term," he said.

"There's 17,000 metres of drilling that Newmont has carried on since 
this resource model was shut of in August, 2004, and we're very 
excited to get some geologists in there to include them into the 
resource model."

There were also a lot of resources that are currently in Newmont's 
non-reserve mineralisation category, Mr Bowler said.

Newmont vice president Indonesian and Australian operations, Bob 
Gallagher, said the company had sold Martabe as part of its strategy 
to focus on its core gold operations and development projects.

"Martabe is best suited to a company like Agincourt, who will 
develop the project as soon as possible, in the best interests of 
both the government of Indonesia and its people."

Agincourt has also formed a joint venture with an Indonesian 
consortium led by Dharmawangsa Group.

The consortium has an option to acquire up to 30 per cent of Martabe 
through a pro-rata contribution to the acquisition and development 

Local government interests in Sumatra will also be offered a five 
per cent interest in Martabe.

However, Agincourt will retain a minimum 67 per cent interest in the 

Agincourt will make a placement of 86.96 million shares at $1.15 per 
share to raise approximately $100 million to fund the acquisition.

Up to an additional $50 million is being invested by Newmont at the 
same issue price.

That will make Newmont the largest shareholder in Agincourt with 
approximately 20 per cent of the shares on issue. Its shareholding 
in Agincourt will be placed in escrow for a term of 12 months.

Agincourt will also undertake a share purchase plan, with eligible 
shareholders entitled to apply for up to 4,340 shares at the same 
issue price as the share placement.

Agincourt said development of Martabe will become its focus for the 
next two years.
