(TSXV: NIM) (FSE: HLI) (the company or Nicola) has entered into a partnership with Ocean Partners UK Limited1 (Ocean Partners “), a company that provides global commercial services for mining, smelters and refineries has signed a purchase agreement (purchase agreement) for the Gold and Silver Center The purchase agreement also includes a revolving prepayment arrangement of US $ 500,000 (prepayment) to enable the company to enter into a purchase agreement with the expected start of processing activities at its processing facility in Merritt.
On April 26, 2021, the company requested a down payment of $ 250,000, which was subsequently received on April 27, 2021. Funding is expected to prepare the processing plant for production and potential acquisitions. The prepayment terms are a three-month LIBOR rate plus 5.5% per annum plus a fee of $ 5,000 for the first prepayment. The company will pay interest payments for the first six months and repay the principal in October 2021. At this point, the company will again be able to take advantage of the prepayment option of $ 500,000.
The undiluted down payment enables the company to complete the investment project and approximate the period between processing plant restart and cash flow. It is not the Net Smelter Return (NSR) license fee and there is no obligation for the company to resume payments once the claimed amount is paid. The main reason the company chose Ocean Partners to sell the center is Ocean Partners’ vision that Nicolas Merritt’s processing facility has the potential to become a small / high-quality project processing center in British Columbia. Ocean Partners has also offered attractive purchase terms and Ocean Partners has expressed an interest in providing Nicola with financing options for the future merger of the gold and silver projects.
The company also announced that Cameron Lilly, P.Eng. , Has taken over the position of Operations Plant Manager at Merritt. Mr. Lilly has held senior positions at leading processing plants across British Columbia for two decades and is an expert in flotation plant optimization, including throttling removal, production accounting, plant design, and industrial ventilation / dust control. His experience in operational and environmental capabilities will add value to Nicholas’ business and his continued commitment to the environment.
Peter Espaeg, CEO of Nicola commented, “We are very excited about the opportunity to work with Ocean Partners and the access to the undiluted financing options that they provide to us. It also reduces the need for the conclusion of the NSR agreement. We also recognize the project integration potential offered by the state-of-the-art processing facility. The fully licensed and costed $ 30million However, we still recognize that the company’s greatest long-term value lies in the 100% owned New Craigmont copper project, in which we will soon begin our exploration program for 2021.
“We have realized the significant investment and long-term commitment required for the projects to obtain approval for a processing plant in British Columbia. We believe that Nicolas has received approval for the first regional site to receive high-quality gold and silver raw materials for the processing plant,” said Brent O’Mland, Chief Financial Officer of Ocean Partners. From all over British Columbia, we are looking forward to a long term relationship.
