The Australian mining and exploration company Metro Mining Limited has revealed that it has entered into a facility agreement with US-based resource project financier Nebari Holdings' Nebari Natural Resources Credit Fund I, LP and Nebari Natural Resources Credit Fund II, LP for a Financing Facility of up to US$30 million (Financing Facility). Proceeds from the Financing Facility allow funding to expand the Company's 100 per cent owned and operating Bauxite Hills Mine in Western Cape York, Queensland.

A drawdown notice has been submitted for US$20 million (A$30 million), with a further US$10 million (A$15 million) available subject to meeting certain conditions precedent. However, there are no principal repayments for the first twenty-four months, and Metro can capitalise on the first six months of interest payments. The maturity date is four years from the initial draw. The Financing facility has been structured to maximise flexibility around future financing options, including provisions for entire early repayment and partial prepayment, accommodation of a pari passu (equal footing) senior ranking with a Northern Australia Infrastructure Fund (NAIF) facility, and an allowance for future royalties.

The present shareholder lenders, Ingatatus AG Pty Ltd (Ingatatus) and Lambhill Pty Ltd (Lambhill), who hold secured debt worth A$35 million, support the financing facility and have also agreed to subordinate to Nebari and postpone principal payments by one year.
