Vancouver, B.C., May 12, 2021: American CuMo Mining Corporation (TSXV: MLY; OTC Pink: MLYCF) is pleased to announce that it has received approval from the Vienna Stock Exchange for admittance to trading for its majority owned subsidiary, International CuMo Mining Corporation’s (“ICMC”) previously announced Silver Financing (see news release dated April 7, 2021). The units are identified on the exchange as Collateralized Silver Purchase Right Bond CUMO S3 with an ISIN AT0000A2R0R7 and will begin trading May 17, 2021.
The Financing involves the sale of up to 12,500 units (“ICMC Silver Units”) by ICMC at a price of US$1,000 per ICMC Silver Unit, with each ICMC Silver Unit consisting of a promissory note in the principal amount of US$1,000 (a “Note”) and a right (the “Silver Purchase Right”) to enter into a silver purchase and sale agreement (a “Silver Purchase Agreement”) with ICMC. The Notes would be secured against certain assets of ICMC; bear interest at a rate of 7.5% per annum payable or accruable semi-annually on June 30 and December 31; and have a term of seven years. With the consent of the holder of the Note, ICMC could prepay all or any portion of the principal amount outstanding under such Note at any time, provided that any prepayment in whole or in part of the Note would cause the Silver Purchase Right to immediately expire. The offering is subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange prior to closing.
Investors interested in these units can obtain additional information from the Company at 604-689-7902 or toll-free at 1-800-667-0873 or by email at email@example.com.
Proceeds from the ICMC Financing will be used to further develop the Company’s flagship asset, the CuMo Project, a large molybdenum, copper, and silver property located in Idaho, including: updating the resource calculation, updating the economic analysis, expanding metallurgical testing, conducting in-fill drilling and conducting environmental base-line studies, as well as to reduce current trade payables and for general working capital purposes and also initiate the data gathering and exploration work to be conducted at its recently acquired Bleiberg project. Certain of the proceeds will also be put aside in order to ensure interest payments can be made. Finder’s fees, in accordance with TSX Venture policy, will be paid in connection with the ICMC Financing.
In an update, the Company stated that the recent large increase in metal prices, especially in the price of copper, is having a positive effect on the potential economics of the CuMo project. In the June 2, 2020 Independent 43-101 Preliminary Economic Analysis (PEA), the 30-year production schedule included 2.5 billion pounds of copper and 107 million ounces of silver. The PEA study used prices of US$3 per lb copper and US$17.50 per ounce silver and calculated a cash cost net of by-products, to produce a pound of Molybdenum at US$4.64. Current metal prices would reduce this potential cash cost to under US$0.75 per pound.
Note: The PEA is preliminary in nature. It includes inferred mineral resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have the economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves, and there is no certainty that the PEA or the new metal prices will be realized. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.
CuMoCo is focused on advancing its CuMo Project towards feasibility. Management is continuing to build an even stronger foundation from which to move the Company and its projects forward. For more information, please visit www.cumoco.com, www.idahocumo.com and www.cumoproject.com.
