Heron in $240m funding deals for Woodlawn

Aspiring miner Heron Resources has tapped investors for about $240 million and says it is now fully funded to develop its Woodlawn zinc-copper project in NSW.

Heron said today the funding package comprised a loan, equity and stream funding deal with Orion Mine Finance Group for $129 million, a subscription agreement with existing shareholder Greenstone Resources for $42 million, a similar agreement with new investor Castlelake for $33 million, and a further $37 million by way of a placement and share purchase plan.

All equity components of the funding deals were made at 7 cents a share, representing a 14 per cent discount to Heron’s 10-day volume-weighted average price.
