(MENAFN) Saudi Arabian Mining (Ma’aden) stated that it secured commercial loans worth USD1 billion aimed at financing the second phase of its aluminum project with US-based Alcoa, reported Times of Oman.

Ma’aden also said that the loan was a 16-year financing for the joint venture’s Bauxite and Alumina project.

The Saudi largest mining company explained that it would pay for the loan starting from June 2017 in twenty-one half-yearly payments. Ma’aden pointed out that the cost for the project’s second phase was USD3.6 billion.
