Our roundup of Canadian small-caps of between $100-million and $2.5-billion in market capitalization making news and on the move today.

Kirkland Lake Gold Ltd. (KL-T) says it acquired 14.7 million common shares of Osisko Mining Inc. (OSK-T) through a private placement financing at a price of $1.70 per share for a total cash payment of approximately $25-million. Kirkland Lake said it now owns 13.6 per cent of Osisko, up from 8.6 per cent.

“Our strategic investment in Osisko increases our ownership interest in the Urban Barry area of northwestern Quebec, which we believe has become a new, highly-prospective mining camp in the prolific Abitibi-Greenstone belt," said Tony Makuch, CEO of Kirkland Lake Gold. "The investment is complementary to our existing interests in Metanor Resources Inc. and Bonterra Resources Inc., both of which have high-potential exploration holdings in the same area.”

Hydrogenics Corp. (HYGS-Q; HYG-T) says it, along with a European consortium, will deliver a 2.5-megawatt electrolyzer-based energy storage system directly connected to a 45-megawatt wind farm in Norway.

“Varanger Kraft’s wind farm, located in Raggovidda, is already one of the most efficient in Europe,” the company stated. “However, due to limitations within the local transmission grid, the project’s capacity of 200 megawatts cannot currently be realized. The consortium – named Haeolus – will enable the production of clean hydrogen using some of the excess power produced from wind in the region.”
