Resolute to pay shareholders in gold via Perth Mint Depository Online

Australian Stock Exchange-listed gold miner Resolute Mining has announced that shareholders with more than 5,000 shares may choose to receive their dividend payments in gold.

The company’s innovative dividend policy has been achieved through a partnership with the Western Australia State-owned Perth Mint, the integrated precious metal refining and coining business which also operates the only government guaranteed bullion investment and storage program in the world.

Eligible Resolute shareholders who opt to receive dividends in gold will have physical gold accredited to a Perth Mint Depository Online Account established in their name.

Depository Online is a recent extension of the Mint’s traditional Depository Program, which currently holds $3 billion worth of client metal in high-security vaults. Operational 24/7 via a secure online trading platform, the new service enables account holders to buy and sell gold, silver or platinum at any time, with the reassurance that all metal holdings are in the Mint’s safe-keeping.

Resolute today announced it will pay a dividend of 1.7 cents per share after achieving a record profit of $213 million.
