The Company is pleased to announce the conclusion of a significant proportion of its funding requirements in relation to the mine expansion (the "Expansion Project"), through entering into a US$14 million copper concentrate prepayment agreement (the "Facility") with Transamine Trading S.A.

  • The Company's subsidiary, EMED Marketing Limited ("EMED Marketing"), will have the ability to draw down the US$14 million prepayment funding following the signing of the agreement;
  • Terms and conditions of the Facility are based on standard market conditions. The Facility will bear interest at US$ 6 months LIBOR + 2.75%;
  • The Facility will be settled through agreed deductions from the payments received for each shipment;
  • Transamine has agreed to pay for copper concentrates at a price based on the prevailing metal prices for the copper and silver content around the time of shipment, less any applicable deductions, all pursuant to the terms of the prevailing offtake agreements;
  • EMED Marketing has the option to extend the contract, with the same terms, for an additional US$ 14 million provided certain production conditions have been met and the first US$ 14 million have been settled.

EMED Marketing's obligations to Transamine under the Facility are secured by ore and concentrates in stock and to be produced by the Company, in addition to new equipment purchased by the Company for the Expansion Project.
