Shares in the placing and subscription were priced at 0.36p with the money earmarked to upgrade the historical scoping study, onsite community development work and for drill target selection.

A portion will also be allocated to the Eureka project in Argentina, which is being assessed

The previous study undertaken at Mankayan in 2014 by Goldfields indicated a post-tax net present value of approximately US$793mln (8% discount), with total post-tax net cash flows of approximately US$3.7bn.

Laurence Read, chief executive, said reassessment of the existing Mankayan engineering studies and a focus on the last, high-grade copper-gold intersections drilled by Goldfields will be key objectives going forward.
