On September 20, 2006, Gold Hawk Resources Inc. announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Compañia Minera San Juan (PERÚ) S.A. (the "Company"), closed a previously announced debt financing package with Natexis Banques Populaires as primary lender, and Auramet Trading, LLC as co-lender to provide up to US$10 million of debt to finance the start up of the Tamboraque Mine and to fund future acquisitions of the Company. The facility was co-arranged by Auramet Trading, LLC and Natexis Banques Populaires. On November 17, 2006, the terms of the US$5 million Tranche B loan facility, which was to be used solely to support the potential acquisition activities of the Company, were amended such that this facility will also be available for the purpose of funding the capital requirements for the Coricancha Mine through June 30, 2007. Gold Hawk is a Canadian natural resource company, based in Vancouver, British Columbia, engaged in the exploration, development and operating of precious and base metal mines. In addition to 100% ownership of the recently acquired Tamboraque Mine in Peru, the Company has exploration properties in Peru and Quebec, Canada. Fasken Martineau advised Natexis and Auramet in this transaction with a team comprised of Chuck Higgins and Daniel Batista (securities) and John Torrey and Thomas Meagher (banking).
