Goldcorp CEO to Osisko counterpart: ‘Good job’

Goldcorp Inc.’s chief executive officer extended an olive branch to Osisko Mining Corp., saying on Thursday that his rival did a good job finding other companies to block his hostile bid.

Osisko CEO Sean Roosen persuaded two mid-sized Canadian miners to pay about $1.3-billion more than Goldcorp’s initial unsolicited stock and cash offer of $2.6-billion.
