Marathon Gold Corporation (TSX: MOZ) is pleased to announce the execution of a credit-approved commitment letter with Caterpillar Financial Services Limited for equipment lease financing related to the development and operation of the Valentine Gold Project located in central Newfoundland.

 

Matt Manson, President and CEO of Marathon, commented: “We are very happy to be announcing today our equipment leasing commitment with Cat Financial, another significant milestone in our project financing arrangements for the Valentine Gold Project. This agreement will provide financing for the Project’s mobile mining equipment through project development and into the first several years of mining operations at an attractive overall cost of capital for Marathon.”
