Canadian miner Cerrado Gold (TSXV:CERT) has signed a $20 million revenue funding agreement with Sprott Resource Streaming Royalty, which the company intends to use to fund ongoing work and deliver a reliability study for the Monte do Carmo gold property in Brazil.

The Monte do Carmo project, located east of Monte do Carmo, consists of 14 exploration permits covering a total area of 67,785 hectares.The project is expected to produce 149,000 oz per year during the first five years of operations. 

Cerrado Gold CEO and co-chairman Mark Brennan said in a press release: “We are very pleased to be partnering again with Sprott to fully finance our feasibility study and development works at Monte do Carmo. The facility is a non-dilutive, attractive financing that allows full flexibility to add additional project financing for construction beginning in 2023.”

Under the agreement, Cerrado Gold will sell 2.25% of all gold and silver produced at the Sprott Resource property with the option to repurchase 50% of the agreed flow-through. This is based on a buyback program. 

Sprott Resource issued a $20 million secured promissory note to Cerrado Gold with an interest rate of 10% per annum scheduled to mature on March 14, 2031 or upon achievement of commercial production from the project among other conditions. 

Sprott managing partner Mike Harrison said: “The results of the Monte Do Carmo PEA Technical Report demonstrate a tier-one, high-return, low-cost gold project with excellent exploration potential in a good jurisdiction.

“This funding provides catalytic capital to advance the project to a construction decision, and also provides the opportunity for Sprott to provide construction financing as the company advances the project.”
