Vector Resources stated in the announcement (my emphasis added):

The Company is also pleased to confirm that it has successfully confirmed the financing terms upon which it is proposing to satisfy the condition precedent relating to the issue of a Standby Letter of Credit in respect to approx. US$20m of existing indebtedness at the Adidi-Kanga Gold Project that is due to a local DRC bank.

Over the past several weeks, the Company has received several financing proposals and is now proposing that this condition precedent will be met through the execution of a Committed Debt Facility with Medea Mining Fund L.P (“Medea”) (through its incorporated Master Fund and associated investment vehicles) for US$20m.

The Adidi-Kanga gold project offers significant untapped potential. It has a JORC (2012) mineral resource estimate of roughly 3.2 million ounces of contained gold, grading roughly 6.6 grams per tonne.

The bottom line: the project looks attractive for shareholders. However, as the saying goes: ‘it’s not over until the fat lady sings’. This is a world-class project and other parties may want to get their hands on it. I’m following the company closely; however, don’t expect the share price to explode until the acquisition is finalised.
