5. Brigus Gold (BRD) engages in gold mining, extraction, processing, as well as exploration and development. The company owns Black Fox, an open-pit and underground mine and mill located near Matheson in the Province of Ontario, Canada.

For the year ended Dec. 2010, the company reported an 82.8% year-over-year increase in revenue to $85.9 million from $47 million, attributable to increased gold sales combined with higher average selling prices. Gold sales soared 52% to 69,922 ounces from 46,016 ounces during 2009, while average realized gold price rose 12% to $981 per ounce from $876 per ounce in the prior year.

After signing the agreement, Cangold will pay Brigus C$1 million and issue 6 million Cangold shares. For a 75% interest in the project, Cangold will be required to pay C$10 million and issue 20 million post-consolidation shares over a three-year period, as well as complete an independent third-party feasibility study on the Campamento deposit.

Going forward, Brigus targets gold production for the first quarter of 2011 at 8,500 gold ounces, and 71,500-75,500 ounces for the remaining three quarters, transforming into a full year 2011 production of approximately 80,000 to 84000 ounces of gold.
