Fujax Minerals provided US$1mln of the loan but wanted security over Mowana for all of its loans before it would provide the remainder.

Other secured lenders with a charge over the mine were not willing to agree to this, said Cradle Arc.

The board is seeking insolvency advice, said the statement.
