This follows the binding commitment by Adventus Mining and Trafigura previously announced on January 17, 2022, together with the financial commitment by Wheaton Precious Metals Corp.

 

With OFA completion, Adventus Mining has definitively secured up to US$235.5 million for the advancement and future construction of the El Domo Project, of which only US$2.5 million has been drawn to date. In addition to and permitted by Trafigura and Wheaton agreement terms, Adventus Mining is in discussions with third parties for up to an additional US$40 million of debt-related facilities that would serve as an optional future cash buffer for the El Domo Project. Currently, Adventus Mining has access to over US$35 million in cash from existing cash balances and available sources, which is sufficient to fund the company and the El Domo Project to the start of full-scale construction.

 

Trafigura Offtake Financing Agreement

 

Pursuant to the OFA, Trafigura will provide Adventus Mining with a senior debt facility of US$45 million, US$5 million of which can be paid on an early deposit basis to be used for pre-construction activities at the El Domo Project. The remainder of the cash consideration is payable in two staged installments during future construction of the El Domo Project, subject to certain customary conditions precedent being satisfied.

  • Facility has a 5-year term, at an annual interest rate equal to SOFR (subject to a 0.5% SOFR floor) plus an 8% interest margin (and a credit adjustment spread of 0.10%).
  • OFA includes an offtake agreement that provides certain concentrate offtake rights to Trafigura for future production from the El Domo deposit over the life of mine, based on the terms in the Feasibility Study.
  • OFA transaction is subject to executed inter-creditor agreements.

The Lender’s Warrants will have a 3-year term, subject to share price threshold accelerator provisions based on Adventus Mining’s share price, potentially bringing approximately C$7 million into Adventus Mining’s treasury. On this basis, Trafigura currently owns approximately 8% of Adventus Mining on a partially diluted basis.
