The company received the majority of placement funds by Thursday afternoon with the remainder due in by Friday 8 December.

Takes up shows “great confidence” in project

Tony Sage, chairman, said “Approximately 95% of the placement has been taken up by European based shareholders which shows great confidence in the Wolfsberg project.

“The funds will be used to help the company better understand the size and value of the deposit in zone two which drilling earlier this year showed to be a very prospective area.”

European Lithium will also issue one free attaching unquoted option for every four shares applied for under the placement.

There will also be 14.4 million options to facilitators of the placement which are exercisable at $0.25 on or before 31 May 2019.

The shares and options are expected to be issued on Monday 11 December 2017.

Definitive feasibility study work at Wolfsberg

The work to be funded at Wolfsberg forms part of a definitive feasibility study (DFS) drilling program.

Management expects to finalise a pre-feasibility study (PFS) by the first quarter of 2018 and have the DFS completed by the third quarter.

News flow surrounding the release of the PFS and DFS are potential share price catalysts in 2018.
