Vancouver, British Columbia – Kimber Resources Inc. (NYSE MKT:KBX, TSX:KBR) (the “Company” or “Kimber”) announces that it has notified Sprott Resource Lending Partnership (SRLP) that it is exercising its right to obtain a six month extension of the maturity date of its $5 million loan credit facility with SRLP announced on July 18, 2012 (the Credit Facility) by the issuance to SRLP of common shares of the Company having a value of $150,000 (the “Extension Shares”). The number of Extension Shares issued to SRLP will be determined by dividing $150,000 by the 5-day volume weighted average price of the Company’s shares on the TSX for the five trading days preceding June 28, 2013, the date on which the Extension Shares are required to be issued to SRLP. As a result of such extension, the new maturity date of the Credit Facility will be December 28, 2013.
The issuance of the Extension Shares is subject to the approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange and the New York Stock Exchange.
Kimber owns mineral concessions covering in excess of 39,000 hectares in the prospective Sierra Madre gold-silver belt, including the Monterde property, where three gold-silver mineral resources have already been defined. The most advanced of these, the Carmen deposit, has been extensively drilled and has undergone detailed geologic modeling. The completion of the Updated Preliminary Economic Assessment for Monterde in 2011 represented a significant step forward for Kimber and supported further evaluation and more advanced economic studies at the Monterde deposits, with the 2012 Updated Mineral Resource Estimate Technical Report for the Carmen deposit representing a component of those activities.
