Firestone Diamonds extended Tango Mining’s deadline for a third time to enable the latter to finalize a loan for financing an acquisition of the BK11 mine in Botswana.

Firestone agreed to sell the mine to Tango last year for $8 million and twice pushed back the date by which Tango must meet the pre-conditions for the deal. This leeway was granted so that Tango could wrap up a proposed $30 million loan commitment with Vanderbilt Commercial Lending to finance the purchase and recommence operations at BK11.

The latest revised ‘drop-dead date’ by which Tango must meet all the conditions of the sale is August 29. The original deadline was September 2015 and extensions were to April and then July.
