TORONTO, Oct. 1, 2013 /CNW/ - NWM Mining Corporation ("NWM" or the "Company") (TSX-V: NWM) announces that it has extended the due date of the current debt
outstanding from September 30, 2013 to October 31, 2013. The extension
provides a further one month for the ongoing documentation to be
concluded with the Company's lender (Renvest Mercantile Bancorp through
its Global Resources Fund), as set out in the Company's press release
dated June 14, 2013. All other terms as were announced previously
remain in place including the September 30, 2014 maturity date for the
amended and restated credit agreement.
Global also owns promissory notes (the "Notes") convertible into 25,000,000 Common Shares. After accounting for the
Common Shares issuable upon Global exercising its conversion right in
respect of the Notes, Global would have ownership or control of 14.7%
of the issued and outstanding Common Shares immediately after the
issuance of the Bonus Shares. The Bonus Shares were issued as non-cash
consideration. Pursuant to the terms of the agreement between NWM and
Global to extend the due date of the Facility from June 2013 to
September 2014 and to reduce the interest rate on the principal from
15% to 12.5% per annum, Global received $75,000 cash consideration from
NWM and the Bonus Shares, being that number of Common Shares required
to bring Global's ownership interest in the outstanding Common Shares
to 10% on a fully-diluted basis. The full extension of the maturity
date is subject to conditions. If the conditions are met, Global will
receive from NWM an additional $75,000, a reduction in the strike price
of the Notes to $0.05, an extension of the maturity date to September
30, 2014, and that number of Common shares which will bring Global's
ownership interest in the outstanding Common Shares to 20% on a fully
diluted basis. This will result in GRF becoming a new "Control Person"
by the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.
Global acts as financing partner and holds equity and debt of NWM for
investment purposes. Global intends to evaluate its holdings in the
future and may increase or decrease its equity position in NWM as

About NWM Mining Corporation
NWM is in commercial gold production at its wholly owned Lluvia-Jojoba
gold mine. The mine is an open pit heap leach operation in Sonora
State, Mexico. Management believes the property is significantly
under-explored and hosts potential to provide further gold discoveries
and resource and reserve upgrades. While management has focused in the
past on developing the mine and supporting cash flows, the focus in
2013 will shift to increasing mining rates and drilling to expand
geological resources and reserves.
