The initial capital investment will have preference payback features and Noble Mining and Del Toro will waterfall into a 50/50 profit split once the initial capital is repaid. The parties will mutually determine the terms of the preference payback in due course. Noble Mining and Del Toro will also partner together with respect to the acquisition of mines that they may encounter through servicing the toll mill customers."This JV is a major achievement in progressing Del Toro's business model of acquiring high-grade, near term production gold properties in the western US.
