Hudson Resources, a Canadian mining concern, announced the completion of its debt funding arrangement for a Senior Loan of $13.0 million and a Subordinated Loan of $9.5 million, for a total of $22.5 million, in it’s 100% owned subsidiary, Hudson Greenland A/S.

At this time, both tranches have been committed to by Cordiant Capital Inc. Drawdown is expected to be available to Hudson Greenland shortly after confirmation that all conditions precedent have been received by the lender. This arrangement has allowed Hudson to complete its funding requirements and maintain its current construction schedule to have the White Mountain project in production in 2018.

As per the original agreement, it is anticipated that the European Investment Bank (“EIB”) will assume the senior finance contract from Cordiant in the near future. Both loans have a term of seven years. Semi-annual principal repayments start after the initial two-year period when only interest payments are required. The Senior Loan carries an interest rate of $US six-month LIBOR plus 6.5%. The Subordinated Loan’s rate is $US six-month LIBOR plus 9.5%. In addition to customary transaction fees, Hudson has agreed to grant Cordiant 450,000 non-transferrable common share purchase warrants exercisable at a price of $0.55 per share for a period of 36 months from date of issuance, subject to the polices of the TSX Venture Exchange.

James Tuer, Hudson’s President, stated, “We are very pleased that we have been able to complete the debt financing of our White Mountain project. It has been a length  process to structure the financing between the various jurisdictions involved. In an effort to complete the financing this summer, we decided it was necessary to engage only one lender initially. As such, Cordiant agreed to commit to the senior loan until the EIB assumes the Senior Loan this fall.”
