Adventus Mining Signs Definitive Financing Agreements with Trafigura to Secure up to US$55 million for El Domo – Curipamba Copper-Gold Project
On Thursday, Adventus Mining Corporation was actually in the news after it announced that it had been successful in getting into definitive agreements in relation to the Offtake Financing Agreement with Trafigura Pte Ltd. It is a major new development since, by way of this agreement, as much as $55 million is going to be invested towards the advancement of the copper-gold project at El Domo-Curipamba.
It goes without that it was a major new development for the company and one that could come as a major long-term boost as well. The latest development is a further development from the binding commitment that had been inked between the two entities back on January 17, 2022. At the time, Wheaton Precious Metals Corp had also committed financially to the project.
In this situation, it is perhaps also necessary for investors to take a look at the bigger picture. But way of the latest Offtake Financing Agreement, the company had managed to secure a possible $235.5 million for advancing and financing future construction of the El Domo Project.
Out of that, the company had only drawn $2.5 million up until now, and hence, it could be said that the runway for the financing is going to be significantly longer. It is interesting to note that Adventus Mining Corporation is currently in discussions with other entities for the purpose of securing as much as $40 million in the form of debt-based facilities. At this point in time, it may be a good idea for investors to add the Adventus Mining Corporation stock to their watch lists.
