VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA — 22 June 2015 – Tango Mining Limited (“Tango” or the “Company”) (TSXV:TGV) announces the completion of the first tranche of the 12% secured notes (“Secured Notes”) for gross proceeds of CAD $525,000.
The Company closed on the first tranche of its offering of non-transferrable convertible Secured Notes bearing interest at a rate of 12% per annum. The Secured Notes have a one year term, and, at any time after issuance, the holder may elect, at the holder’s sole discretion, to be repaid all or a portion of the principal amount of the Secured Note in common shares of the Company at a value of CAD $0.05 per common share. In the event that the holders elect to have the accrued and unpaid interest payable by the issuance of common shares of Tango, the Company shall make application to the TSX Venture Exchange for approval to have the shares issued at a price not below the market price at the time that the accrued interest becomes due and payable.
The aggregate offering of the Secured Notes, in the amount of up to CAD $2,500,000, are secured against Tango’s 51% interest in African Star Minerals (Pty) Ltd., and the closing and completion of any lesser amount of Secured Notes shall result in a pro-rata reduction of pledged interest, which, only perfects and becomes realizable by the holder upon an event of default by Tango under the terms of the Secured Notes. Further, Tango’s 51% interest remains subject to completion of the transfer of the underlying securities representing same in respect of the application for transfer made to the Minister of Mineral Resources pursuant to section 11 of the draft Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Act No. 28 of 2002, Republic of South Africa.
Tango paid an eligible finder a cash finder’s fee equal to 6% of the gross proceeds raised for the first tranche issuance of Secured Notes in the amount of CAD $16,500. The Secured Notes and the underlying common shares issuable upon conversion are subject to a four-month hold period expiring on October 20, 2015.
The proceeds from the private placement offering of Secured Notes will be used for ongoing development of the Company’s current projects, acquisition of new projects and for general working capital purposes.
