The agreement is considered a related party transaction but is exempt from the requirement to obtain a formal valuation as the note is on reasonable commercial terms that are not less advantageous to the company or convertible into equity.
Fura is advancing a portfolio of gemstone assets in Mozambique, Colombia and Australia.
