Tirex Resources receives more funding from European Bank for Reconstruction

When junior mining companies struggle to raise capital, recent funding secured by Canadian Venture listed Tirex Resources (TSX.V: TXX) from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) comes as welcome news. TXX has arranged to immediately draw down EUR 1 million (approximately CAD $1,625,000) from EBRD. The loan bears interest at LIBOR plus 3%.

Funds will be utilised to advance the company’s flagship project Mirdita in Albania. Mirdita is expected to have the potential to become one of the world's great VMS Districts with multiple large economic deposits. Albania’s mineral riches are yet to be fully exploited as the country languished several decades under Socialistic regimes during which and mining was focused only on copper and was conducted by state-run Soviet, Chinese and Albanian organizations. TXX therefore appears to have secured a good deal for itself in Mirdita.

To date, TXX has drilled wide widths of gold-rich VMS mineralization in three separate areas in the 344 sq km District. In 2009, TXX will conduct expansion and definition drilling in these three areas as well as drilling extensions of other known zones of mineralization and previously untested geophysical targets. This intense drill program will run concurrently with large, District-scale ground geophysical, geochemical and mapping work.  

Additional funding by the EBRD further confirms their commitment to Mirdita and TXX. It also appears that the EBRD is one of those few remaining financial institutions prepared to back resources companies. While many financial institutions around the world are dramatically scaling back investments, the EBRD plans to invest approximately EUR 7 billion in its countries of operations this year, compared with EUR 5.1 billion in 2008. TXX has maintained good relationship with EBRD and appears to have a solid partner.
