Avenira secured loan facility for Jundee South Gold Project
Avenira has successfully secured a loan facility of $3 million through an agreement with its prominent shareholder, Au Xingao Investment Pty Ltd.
The loan has been secured at an annual interest rate of 8% for a period of 3 years. The lender has the option to convert the loan amount into ordinary equity shares on completion of 18 months from the day of signing of the agreement.
Jundee South Gold Project
The Jundee South Gold Project is spread over 720 km2 in the prolific Yandal Greenstone Belt. The project is located in close vicinity of World-class projects, including Jundee Mine (10Moz), Bronzewing (4Moz) and Darlot (3.5Moz) deposit.
Avenira undertook the maiden aircore drilling campaign at the project in 2020. During the campaign, 259 holes were drilled to test the Priority 1 and Priority 2 targets on the project. Two trends of gold mineralisation were identified in the project area.
Avenira also launched a resampling program for anomalous 4m intercepts with an average interval of 1m, the result of which is awaited. Avenira has planned an RC drilling program during the second quarter of 2021.
Avenira closed at $0.009 a share on 11 March 2021 with a market capitalisation of $7.76 million.
