Perseus Mining Côte d’Ivoire’s project financing


Norton Rose Fulbright and SCPA Dogué-Abbé Yao & Associés advised major financial institution Macquarie Bank Limited on a project financing to Perseus Mining Côte d’Ivoire, a subsidiary of Perseus Mining Limited, an ASX-listed, WA-based mining company.

The project loan facility will be used for the development and operating costs of the Sissingué gold project, which is understood to be the first ever project financing of a mining project in Côte d’Ivoire, and the first ever under the current Ivorian mining laws.

Norton Rose Fulbright Perth-based partner Alen Pazin (Picture) led the deal with a team including consultant Herman Yip, associate Megan Tan and graduate Catherine Todd.

SCPA Dogué-Abbé Yao & Associés, our Ivorian counsel, advised on the Ivorian law aspects of the deal.
