Aurora Gold Project Fully Funded; Guyana Goldfields Secures Credit Approvals for US$185 Million Debt Financing; Private Placement Financing of US$33 Million


TORONTO , June 9, 2014 /CNW/ - Guyana Goldfields Inc. (GUY.TO) and its wholly owned subsidiary, AGM Inc., (together, the "Company") are pleased to announce that the Mandated Lead Arrangers (the "Lenders") for the debt financing syndicate have received credit approvals to provide a US$185 million ("M") senior secured project finance facility (the "Project Loan Facility" or the "Facility") to fund the development and construction of the Aurora Gold Project (the "Project"). The Lenders are comprised of International Finance Corporation, Export Development Canada, ING Capital LLC, Caterpillar Financial Services Corporation, and The Bank of Nova Scotia . The Project Loan Facility will consist of two tranches; a Tranche 1 facility of US$160M and a Tranche 2 cost overrun facility of US$25M , subject to negotiation and settlement of definitive documentation, which will include customary project finance terms, fees, conditions, ongoing due diligence, and conditions precedent. The maximum term of the Facility is eight years and the interest rate is based upon the 3-month LIBOR rate, which based on current parameters would be 6.3% for the Tranche 1 facility and 6.8% for the Tranche 2 facility (if drawn). There will be no gold hedging requirements or other similar provisions associated with the Facility.

Under the Facility, the Company is obligated to fund an additional US$33M as a condition of first disbursement. Transaction and facility arrangement costs are estimated to be approximately US$11M . The Company's Project budget including contingency is US$249M . The cost to complete the Project, including interest during construction, working capital, and transaction costs is expected to be US$277M . Development costs of US$47M have been incurred to date. Total funding sources amount to US$335M and are composed of cash on hand, the proposed Facility, and the additional US$33M in funding; exceeding the cost to complete by US$58M .

The Company proposes to fund the additional US$33M (approximately C$37M ) with the proceeds obtained from a non-brokered private placement offering (the "Placement"). Under the Placement, the Company expects to issue approximately 20,000,000 common shares at a price of C$1.85 per common share for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately C$37,000,000 . The net proceeds of the Placement will be used to meet the Lenders' condition of first disbursement. In connection with the Placement, the Company will pay eligible arm's length person(s) a cash fee of 5% of gross proceeds raised.  The Placement is subject to conditions including, without limitation, receipt of all regulatory approvals, including the approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange, and completion of definitive documentation. The common shares issued upon the closing of the Placement will be subject to a 4-month hold period. Management, directors and insiders of the Company are expected to purchase up to C$10M of the Placement.

Scott A. Caldwell , President and Chief Executive Officer states, "The approval of this Facility from all Lenders demonstrates the strong support and confidence in the Project. We look forward to working together with this reputable group of lenders. Our 6+ years of partnership with the IFC has helped us to establish an environmental, health, safety, and social management system that meets international best practices. The Project remains on schedule to achieve commercial production in mid-2015. We expect the mine to produce well in excess of 3M ounces of gold based on current reserves with average life of mine operating cash costs below US$600 per ounce."

The securities offered have not been registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any State in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.

The Company is being advised on the debt financing by Endeavour Financial Limited (Cayman).
