Detour Gold Closes Secured Letter of Credit Facility

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 01/14/13 -- Detour Gold Corporation (TSX:DGC) ("Detour Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to report that it has successfully obtained a $45 million senior secured letter of credit facility (the "Facility"), available to the Company for financial assurance. All amounts are in Canadian dollars.

The Facility was jointly provided by BMO Capital Markets and Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce. It was activated in December 2012 with the drawdown of $28.3 million which was used to replace cash collateralized bonds posted for the Detour Lake closure plan. At year-end, the Company's cash and short-term investments totalled $236 million, sufficient to cover remaining project construction expenditures of approximately $120 million and working capital requirements during the initial ramp-up period.

The Company anticipates closing a $90 million senior secured revolving credit facility that would be available for general corporate purposes in the second quarter of 2013.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
