Lydian Announces US$35 Million Closing of Second Deposit Under Stream Agreement






Lydian International Limited (TSX:LYD) is pleased to announce it has received US$35 million from Orion Mine Finance and Resource Capital Fund VI L.P. representing the gross proceeds of the second deposit under the stream agreement entered into with Orion and RCF on November 30, 2015. Together with gross proceeds from the first deposit under the stream agreement received December 7, 2015, the full amount of US$60 million as contemplated under the stream agreement has now been advanced to Lydian.



“Engineering work for Amulsar continues to advance rapidly and has reached the point where we expect to mobilize bulk earthworks contractors to site in the coming weeks. Several key equipment orders are also imminent. We are pleased to receive this additional funding, which gives us cash on hand in excess of US$150 million and supports advancing construction activities as scheduled,” said Howard Stevenson, Lydian’s President and CEO.



The Company will continue to review its funding and construction timelines, including the availability period for the term loan agreement with Orion and RCF.
