Cadence Interest In the Amapa Iron Project
In early September 2020, we announced that DEV Mineração S.A’s, Cadence and Indo Sino Pty Ltd agreed in principle to the settlement terms proposed by the secured bank creditors. Detailed discussions and drafting of the legal documents continue.
The execution of a settlement agreement with the Bank Creditors would represent the satisfaction of Cadence Minerals’ remaining major precondition to make its initial 20% investment in the Amapa Project. On completion of the conditions and the release of the KDNC escrow monies, the company will become a 20% shareholder in the Amapá Project via our joint venture company, which will own 99.9% of DEV.
