Mark Child, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Condor Gold commented: "The company has been in negotiations with Regent regarding the Further Placement whereby Regent [Regent Pacific Group] had offered to invest a further £3.0m on revised terms at a share price which reflected current market conditions.

"However, agreement could not be reached on those revised terms. As a consequence, Regent informed the company on March 22nd 2013 that it had decided not to subscribe for additional shares in Condor at this time."

Condor Gold is fully funded with £8.4m cash and is in a strong position to complete its planned work programme, the company said.

Regent Pacific Group holds 3.58m ordinary shares in the company representing 9.45% of the company's issued share capital. There are currently 37.87m ordinary shares in issue.

Condor Gold's share price was down 3.68% to 144p at 14:37 on Friday.
