Sacre-Coeur Minerals Announces Delay in Closing Financing

July 17, 2014

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES



Vancouver, British Columbia(FSCwire) - SACRE-COEUR MINERALS, LTD. (the “Company”) previously announced that it received Bondholder approval for further amendment to the terms of the gold participation bonds (the “Bonds”) issued by its wholly-owned subsidiary, Sacre-Coeur Minerals (Jersey) Limited (the “Issuer”), under a trust deed dated January 15, 2013, as amended (the “Trust Deed”). Under the amended terms of the Trust Deed, the Company was permitted to complete new secured non-equity financing (the “Supplemental Financing”) to raise up to US$12,000,000, of which not less than US$2,000,000 was to be provided by June 30, 2014 and was intended to be used, in part, to pay accrued interest to the Bondholders. The Company has been advised by two of its three expected financing sources that they have each encountered what are anticipated to be brief delays in being ready to close, which delays are related to each of the financiers’ internal matters and are not related to the Company or to the structure of the intended financing. As a consequence of the foregoing delays, the Company is in technical default under the provisions of the Trust Deed. The Company is working with the Trustee for the Bondholders to keep the Trustee apprised of the anticipated timing for resolution and to close the financing and deliver interest payment to the Bondholders. 

A third financing source previously contemplated to comprise US$3,000,000 of the Supplemental Financing is no longer considered by the Company to be a viable component of the Supplemental Financing.

Upon completion of the investments by the two aforementioned financing sources, the Company expects to have funded all or a substantial portion of the Supplemental Financing. In connection with the completion of these financings and payment of the accrued interest to the Bondholders, the Company will seek a further amendment to the Trust Deed and formal waiver of default in order to bring the Bonds back into good standing. Completion of the Supplemental Financing is also expected to solidly recapitalize the Company for execution of its development and production plans.
