SyCip Salazar Hernandez & Gatmaitan (“SyCipLaw”) acted as Philippine counsel to Red 5 Limited (ASX: RED) and Greenstone Resources Corporation in connection with an US$8 million senior secured facility obtained from Sprott Resource Lending Partnership.

The SyCipLaw team consisted of partner Hector M. de Leon, Jr., senior associate Melyjane G. Bertillo-Ancheta and associate Doris Sharry P. Salazar.
