LONDON, Feb. 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Americas Diamond Corp. (OTCBB:ADMC) ("Americas Diamond" or "the Company") confirms having entered into non-toxic equity financing agreement for up to $5,000,000.
The company has signed a $3,200,000 financing agreement with an additional option to secure a further $1,800,000, bringing the total value of the deal to $5,000,000 in equity investment over a maximum term of three years. The company has secured equity financing, and as such is debt free.
The funding has been agreed in an effort to further the company's final program of bulk-sampling on the Natal I and II diamond concessions in the Guaniamo district of Bolivar State in Venezuela and other operating expenses.
The Company plans to treat an anticipated 100,000 tonnes of material, which will be processed through the diamond recovery plant. From sampling to date, the Company believes the effort should produce between 10,000 and 20,000 carats in total, which is well in excess of 5,000 carat benchmark, which is the number widely recognized as providing enough of a sample to measure the style of a "diagnostic individual diamond population".
Under the terms of the agreement the Company shall issue restricted common shares of the Company at Unit Price. The Unit Price means a price equal to the 95% of the volume-weighted average of the closing price of Common Stock, for the ten (10) days immediately preceding the date of the Notice. Each unit shall consist of one share (restricted) of the common stock of the Company and one share purchase warrant (each a 'Warrant'). Each Warrant shall entitle the Subscriber to purchase one additional share of Common Stock, at an exercise price equal to 110% of the Unit Price, at which the Unit containing the Warrant being exercised was issued, for a period of two (2) years from the date such Warrant is issued.
"We're very excited about this non-toxic equity investment, and are looking forward to progressing our work program on the Natal concessions." commented Daniel Martinez, Americas Diamond Corp's Chief Executive Officer. "These funds will allow us to complete our bulk-sampling program that we announced recently. We are excited by the possible magnitude of the primary deposit, which we feel could be considerable, and are eager for our staff on the site to get the program underway."
