In subdued mining sector, Osisko’s royalty company shines

The royalty stream born out of Osisko Mining Corp.’s drawn out takeover battle is being talked about as a rare, promising investment in a sector decimated by cost overruns and billion-dollar writedowns.

Osisko Gold Royalties Ltd., which was created during Yamana Gold Corp. and Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd.’s joint acquisition of Osisko Mining, is being showered with praise, largely because of its connection to Quebec’s Canadian Malartic gold mine.
