The Facility is comprised of USD165 million (the PF Tranche) to be used towards funding the development of a second mine for the Wahgnion Gold Project in Burkina Faso and to repay all of the Company’s current outstanding bank debt totalling USD15 million drawn on its revolving credit facility with Société Générale. The Facility also includes a further USD25 million to be used toward future advancement of a feasibility study for the exploration stage of another gold project located in Burkina Faso.
