Upon listing, the Chinese incorporated Shandong Gold Mining Co. became dual-listed, with shares already listed on the Shanghai Stock Exchange. The company is among one of the largest gold producers listed in China and Hong Kong that operate in China, with a 6.9% market share in China in terms of 2017 gold mine volume in China. As of March this year, the group controlled and operated 12 mines in China, as well as jointly operating with Barrick Gold, a leading global gold company, the Veladero mine in Argentina, being the largest gold mine in Argentina and in South America in terms of 2017 gold mine production volume.

Vincent commented ‘We were delighted to act for Shandong Gold again on this substantial listing, after its USD 960 million acquisition of a 50% stake in Veladero mine from Barrick Gold last year, further cementing the teams reputation as leading specialists for IPO and M&A work‘.
