“Significant benefit to the company”

“In addition to her strong background in corporate and governance matters, Sara’s legal and transactional experience will be of significant benefit to the company as it pursues its expansion plans.”
Indicative term sheet
The company recently signed an updated, indicative term sheet with Mercuria Energy Group providing A$21 million in the form of a prepaid swap on gold with a supporting hedge facility, and an intention to a further A$40 million, for a total of up to A$61 million.
The company has received credit approval from Mercuria for the A$21 million first tranche, which is now only conditional upon finalisation of the usual legal documentation.
The additional A$40 million will be made available upon further certain conditions being satisfied and is not part of Mercuria’s initial credit approval.
