VANCOUVER, Nov. 27, 2019 /CNW/ - Boreal Metals Corp. ("Boreal" or the "Company") (TSXV:BMX) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a loan facility agreement (the "Loan Agreement") with EMX Royalty Corporation (the "Lender") for a secured loan facility of C$800,000 (the "Loan").
The Loan will have a term of 12 months and will have an effective annual interest rate of 8.08%. Boreal may at any time prepay the Loan plus accrued interest without penalty. The Lender is an insider of the Company by virtue of holding 9,525,735 common shares of the Company, or 12.53% of the Company's issued and outstanding common shares. Proceeds of the Loan will be used on the exploration projects and for working capital purposes.
As consideration for the Loan, the Company will pay to the Lender a loan facility bonus fee (the "Loan Facility Bonus Fee") equal to 5% of the Loan, to be payable in cash on closing of the Loan. The Lender may, at its option, elect to receive payment of the Loan Facility Bonus Fee in common shares of Boreal ("Bonus Shares"), in which event such Bonus Shares will be issuable at not less than the market price of the common shares of Boreal, with such market price to be determined in accordance with applicable TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") policy. The Company may choose to postpone payment of the Loan Facility Bonus Fee to a later date, at which point it will be added to the principal of the Loan. The Loan, including the payment of the Loan Facility Bonus Fee and any issuance of Bonus Shares, is subject to the approval of the TSXV, and any Bonus Shares issued will also be subject to a statutory four month hold period.
The Company will also grant the following security to the Lender in connection with the Loan:
a pledge of the issued and outstanding shares of Iekelvare Minerals AB ("Iekelvare"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company; and
the obligation to transfer the Gumsberg License (or the issued and outstanding shares of Iekelvare) to the Lender if the Loan is in default.
