Toronto, Ontario - October 9, 2013, Noble Mineral Exploration Inc. (the "Company", "Noble" or "NOB") (TSX-V:NOB, FRANKFURT:NB7, OTC.PK:NLPXF) announces that it has closed the fourth tranche of a secured debt financing. At this closing, $100,000 was raised. The total raised under this secured credit facility now stands at $479,453.
The loan provided to the Company at this fourth tranche closing matures on July 11, 2017 and is secured by a mortgage on the property comprising Noble's Project 81, as well as by a charge on all other assets of the Company. The mortgage securing this loan is subordinate in ranking to the mortgages in favour of Franco-Nevada Corporation with respect to debentures issued in October 2011 (for a principal amount of $2,000,000) and April 2012 (for a principal amount of $1,500,000). Pursuant to an intercreditor agreement, the security granted to the lender in the fourth tranche closing ranks equally to the security underlining loans made to Noble under loan agreements dated October 19, 2012, December 22, 2012, as well as the security in favour of the lenders at the first three tranches of this secured debt financing.
Interest accrues on this new secured loan at 12% per annum, with interest to be paid quarterly. As additional consideration to the lender who advanced funds to Noble in this closing, Noble has issued a total of 400,000 common shares (issued at a deemed price of $0.05 per share). These shares are subject to a four-month hold period expiring on February 9, 2014.
The TSX Venture Exchange conditionally approved the terms of this transaction on July 8, 2013.
The proceeds of this loan will be used to repay debts and to provide the Company with working capital.
