Gran Tierra Energy Inc. (" Gran Tierra " or the " Company ") (NYSE American:GTE) (TSX:GTE) (LSE:GTE) today announced that it has, through its wholly owned subsidiaries Gran Tierra Energy Colombia, LLC and Gran Tierra Colombia Inc., entered into a credit facility of up to US$150 million. The facility replaces Gran Tierra's previous credit facility that had a borrowing base of US$150 million. The new facility is with Trafigura, a market leader in the global commodities industry, and has a final maturity date of August 15, 2024, which may be extended to February 18, 2025 if certain conditions are met.

Highlights of the new facility include:

  • An initial commitment of US$100 million with a potential option of up to an additional US$50 million;
  • The loan is secured by the economic rights over certain contracts together with Gran Tierra's Colombian commercial establishment; and
  • Interest payable on the facility is based on a SOFR risk-free rate plus a margin of 6.00% per annum.

In connection with the new facility, certain of Gran Tierra's wholly owned subsidiaries have also entered into commercial contracts for the purchase by Trafigura of crude oil from Gran Tierra's producing fields located in Colombia. The repayment of the new facility will be made by way of deductions of the price payable by Trafigura for the crude oil delivered under such contracts.

Ryan Ellson, Chief Financial Officer of Gran Tierra, commented today:

"We are very pleased to have successfully closed a new credit facility with Trafigura. In conjunction with our strong operating cash flows and $109 million of cash on hand at June 30, 2022, the new facility will provide the Company with additional liquidity and financial flexibility."

What are Prefeasibility and Feasibility Studies? (Updated 2022)

What are Prefeasibility and Feasibility Studies? (Updated 2022)

Resource investors new to the market might see quite a few unfamiliar phrases in news releases. Prefeasibility and feasibility studies are definitely two key mining terms to know.

Prefeasibility and feasibility studies are inherently linked to each other — understanding their differences creates a clearer idea of what they are and how they’re used. Their key similarity is that they represent milestones for mining and exploration companies.

On that note, let’s take a closer look at what exactly prefeasibility and feasibility studies are, as well as how they fit into company plans and the lifecycle of a mining project.

Blue Lagoon Hits 126 g/t Au and 404 g/t Ag at Chance

Blue Lagoon Hits 126 g/t Au and 404 g/t Ag at Chance

Blue Lagoon Resources Inc. (the "Company") (CSE:BLLG; FSE:7BL; OTCQB:BLAGF) is pleased to announce significant mineralized intercepts from the first holes of the Phase Two 2022 drill program on its all year-round and road accessible Dome Mountain Gold Project, located a short 50-minute drive from Smithers, British Columbia. Drill results include 126 gt Au and 404 gt Ag over 0.41 meters from the Chance Structural Zone (CSZ) in hole DM-22-247

"While drilling the mineralized flat structural zone in the CSZ ("Flat Chance") we have encountered what we believe to be a new vein system of higher grade than those hosted in the Flat Chance Structure", said Bill Cronk, Chief Geologist for Blue Lagoon Resources. "The Flat Chance Structure has been drilled down dip for 400 meters and along strike for 200 meters and the structure has been hit in all holes so far. This structural zone ranges from less than 1 meter up to 15 meters thick which may host multiple gold mineralized veins and attendant alteration. Our drilling to extend along strike also intersected a new structure that lies orthogonal to the Flat Chance Structure and appears, at least initially, much higher grade, and offers another opportunity to develop additional mineralized resources at Dome Mountain."
