("Ormonde" or "the Company")


Appointment of Swedbank as Bond Advisors for Barruecopardo


The Board of Ormonde is very pleased to advise that it has appointed Swedbank Norway ("Swedbank") as Advisors in relation to the contemplated senior bond financing of approximately €50 million for its Barruecopardo Tungsten Project, located in western Spain.


Ormonde will work closely with Swedbank over the coming period with regards to the financing of Barruecopardo.


In addition to the capital costs for Barruecopardo of €48.5M, the total upfront fundable cost is expected to include value added tax on CAPEX, (approx. €9M, which is refundable), the project company Saloro SLU's working capital requirement for the construction and initial production periods, and interest on debt during construction.  The final gross fundable cost will be defined following agreement of offtake and financing terms, and is estimated to be in the region of €70M. As previously advised, Ormonde intends to finance Barruecopardo through a combination of debt, an equity component (whether by way of joint venture or otherwise) and off-take contracts.



Kerr Anderson, Ormonde's Managing Director, commented:


"As we now move towards completion of the permitting process for our Barruecopardo Tungsten Project following recent advances, it is an appropriate time to formalise our relationship with Swedbank whom we have been in discussions with over the past year. Ormonde is therefore very pleased to appoint Swedbank as Advisors in relation to the contemplated €50 million senior bond financing of our world class tungsten project in Spain. We look forward to working with Swedbank over the coming period as we finalise these plans."
