The shares will be placed to a 100% owned subsidiary of Kalahari Minerals plc (LON:KAH).

Along with existing cash balances of approximately A$39.7m, the funds will be used to complete the company’s current drilling programs in Namibia. Extensive exploration potential also exists for new uranium discoveries in the region.

Proceeds will also fund further value engineering and optimisation initiatives in support of the Definitive Feasibility Study on the Husab Uranium Project, allowing initial engineering and pre-development work to commence at the project.
