Australia’s Earth Heat Gets Argentina Geothermal Project Loans

Earth Heat Resources Ltd., an Australian company with assets in Argentina, hired Corporacion Interamericana para el Financiamento de Infraestructura as mandated lead arranger for a $22.5 million loan, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

Proceeds will be used for drilling three of four wells and the financing adds to $134 million of project finance debt from the Inter-American Development Bank which will also be used to develop the company’s geothermal venture in Copahue, Argentina. That facility should be completed as early as June, the data show.

Adelaide-based Earth Heat, whose shares have dropped almost 50 percent in the past year, also signed an agreement with AGS Capital Group LLC for A$17.5 million of capital contingency financing, the data show.
