Diamcor Receives Final TSX Venture Exchange Approval Closes $4.0 Million Financing

KELOWNA, November 22, 2012 – Diamcor Mining Inc. (TSX-V.DMI) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the $4,000,000 financing  from its long-term strategic alliance partner, world famous premier luxury jewellery and specialty retailer Tiffany & Co. (“Tiffany”), as previously announced on November 16, 2012, has received final TSX Venture Exchange approval and accordingly, closed.  The $4,000,000 in financing is provided by Tiffany’s subsidiary, Tiffany & Co. Canada, via a $2,400,000 term loan (the “Term Loan”) and a $1,600,000 convertible debt debenture (the “Convertible Debenture”). 

The Term Loan has a fixed rate of interest of 9% and is secured by a promissory note (the “Promissory Note”) which is non-amortizing until January 20, 2014, at which time principal and interest is payable monthly until maturity on December 20, 2016.  The Company has the right to repay the outstanding principal and any accrued and unpaid interest due under the Promissory Note at any time without notice or penalty.

The Convertible Debenture has a fixed rate of interest of 9% per annum, and is non-amortizing until January 20, 2014, following which time principal and interest  is payable monthly in accordance with a 36 month amortization schedule until maturity on December 20, 2016. The Company has the right to repay the outstanding principal and any accrued and unpaid interest, without penalty, on not less than 30-days’ notice and subject to the conversion rights contained in the Convertible Debenture. Under the conversion rights of the Convertible Debenture, Tiffany & Co. Canada may convert the principal amount of $1,600,000, along with any accrued and unpaid interest due at that time, in whole or in part, into Class A Common Shares (the “Shares”) of the Company at a conversion price of CAD $1.60 per Share.  Under the conversion scenario, a maximum of 1,090,000 Shares in the Company would potentially be issued.  Any Shares issued upon the conversion of any amounts due under the Convertible Debenture will be subject to a hold period which expires four months and one day from the date of issuance of the Convertible Debenture.

The sourcing, negotiation and successful completion of this additional financing transaction with Tiffany & Co. were completed by the Company’s management and directors.  As a result no brokerage or finder’s fees were incurred by the Company.
