Vendetta Mining Corp. (TSX-V: VTT) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a non-binding term sheet for a proposed financing transaction with Nebari Holdings LLC.
The proceeds of the proposed financing are planned to be used to pay the final Pegmont Lead-Zinc property payment of A$3,000,000 and in doing so complete the Company’s acquisition of a 100% interest in the Pegmont Lead-Zinc project.
Michael Williams, Vendetta’s President and CEO commented “Upon completion, this financing will secure the balance of the 100% acquisition of the Pegmont Project while the recently announced private placement will provide the Company with sufficient working capital to execute the Company’s goals for the next twelve months. We would like to thank Nebari for aligning with our corporate objectives to the satisfaction of both parties.
This financing is also based on consideration of the cost of capital and eliminating further extension payments. With the completion of the PEA and 100% ownership the Company will be positioned to further advance the Pegmont project and deliver shareholder value.”
The material terms of the financing as set forth in the term sheet, include the following:
Nebari Holdings, LLC is an investment firm based in New York City focused on natural resources and special situations. The organisation is headed by an experienced team of mining professionals with experience working at organizations such as Glencore/Xstrata and Rio Tinto as well as finance professionals with experience from JPMorgan, Perry Capital and McKinley Capital.

The spot price and exchange rate case demonstrates the strong sensitivity to metal prices with a pre-tax IRR of 37% (after tax 27%) and NPV8% of $249M ($158M after tax), using metal prices as of January 22, 2019 of $0.94/lb lead, $1.25/lb zinc and $15.30/oz silver and US$:A$ of $0.71.
