TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 10/09/13 -- QMX GOLD CORPORATION (TSX:QMX) ("QMX Gold" or the "Company") has signed a Waiver and Amendment Agreement (the "Agreement") related to the Bridge Financing provided by Third Eye Capital Corporation ("Third Eye") (Press Release of November 28, 2012). As part of the Agreement, QMX Gold has transferred a $1,000,000 Security Deposit to Third Eye to cover unpaid and accrued interest calculated to date as well as a waiver fee. The remaining balance will be used to prepay interest through to the maturity date and to prepay a portion of the principal due at maturity.
The Security Deposit was paid to Third Eye from the $1,000,000 cash deposit received from Liberty Mines Inc. in respect of the execution of the definitive purchase agreement (the "Definitive Agreement") for the Snow Lake Mine as announced on October 2, 2013.
The pending sale of the Snow Lake Mine to Liberty Mines is expected to be completed on or before November 25, 2013 and the additional proceeds of $19,000,000, payable on the closing will be used to pay the remaining debt obligation to Third Eye and for general working capital purposes. If Liberty elects to extend the terms of the Definitive Agreement, provisions have been made between QMX Gold and Third Eye to allow for the extension of the original maturity date, at Third Eye's option, subject to a monthly monitoring fee.
Pursuant to the Agreement, subject to approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange, QMX has agreed that it will re-issue the 2,900,000 warrants to acquire common shares of the Company previously granted to Third Eye at a new exercise price of $0.0465 (or such other price as may be adjusted by the Toronto Stock Exchange), which represents the five-day VWAP of the common shares of the Company as traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange immediately prior to execution of the Agreement. The warrants will expire on their original expiry date of November 28, 2015.
In addition, Third Eye has waived the covenant breach that occurred June 30, 2013 as outlined in the press release dated August 15, 2013 and accordingly, the Company has regained access to its bank accounts.
