EDMONTON, Feb. 12 /CNW/ - Solid Resources Ltd. ("Solid" or the "Company")
announces that it has closed a $60,000 debt financing (the "Loan"). Mr. Alvin
Harter, a related party to the Company, has lent $60,000 to the Company
pursuant to the terms of a non-convertible promissory note (the "Note"). The
Note provides: (a) for interest at the rate of 10% per annum (with interest
for the first 6 month period being prepaid by a deduction against the
principal amount); (b) that it is payable on demand after 90 days written
notice; and (c) that no demand may be made by Mr. Harter under the note until
6 months have lapsed from the date of issue. The Company has granted
collateral security in its 10% percent carried interest in Bearing Gold
Resources mining claims in Columbia to secure repayment of the Loan.
The TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") has, pursuant to correspondence dated
February 8, 2008, conditionally accepted the Loan and the grant of security.
The TSXV has advised that final acceptance will be issued upon receipt of
executed copies of all transaction documents and the issuance of this news
release. In addition, the Executive Director of the Alberta Securities
Commission has, pursuant to correspondence also dated February 8, 2008,
granted permission for the funding of the Loan directly to Solid.
The proceeds of the Loan will be used for expenses on the Company's
Sacrificio Property located in Mexico and general operating expenses.
Although the Company explored completing financings with non-related
parties, the Company was not able to do so in a timely fashion. As such, the
Board of Directors formed a special committee (the "Special Committee"),
consisting of its independent Directors, to negotiate the terms of the Loan
with Mr. Harter. The Special Committee and the Board of Directors unanimously
concluded that the Loan and the grant of security were on commercially
reasonable terms and would improve the financial position of the Company.
