Richard Poulden, Chairman and CEO of Wishbone Gold Plc commented: "I believe this is an excellent deal for Wishbone. Sanderson have recognised the lower risk opportunity of the project with a low interest rate and other fees linked entirely to the success of our operations. Thus far we have traded gold in small volumes constrained by working capital and this enables us to move on the larger contracts, which we have in place. We will issue a trading update as soon as we are able to do so."
