NSW gold mine gets funding with Maddocks' aid

Maddocks has lent its legal expertise to get funding for the development of a gold mine in New South Wales.

The independent firm advised Diversified Minerals on a $74m syndicated project-finance facility and an US$18m royalty, which will be used to develop the Dargues Gold Mine.

Financing aspects of the transaction were handled by a team headed by partner Arlene Colquhoun. It included lawyers Alba Ramli and Joanne Chenn.
