DAR ES SALAAM, Tanzania, Oct. 13, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Twiga Minerals Corporation, the joint venture between the Tanzanian government and Barrick Gold Corporation (NYSE:GOLD)(TSX:ABX), has paid a maiden interim cash dividend of $250 million in line with Barrick’s commitment to generate value for all stakeholders through the 50/50 partnership.
