A strong response has been received to the rights offer.

White Cliff Minerals Ltd (ASX:WCN) has raised more than $2.3 million in a rights offer and is now debt free as it advances a gold project in the Kyrgyz Republic and a cobalt-nickel project in Western Australia.

The renounceable entitlements offer will result in the issue of almost 154 million shares and an equal number of options.

Applications were received totalling almost $1.109 million with the remaining shortfall of more than $1.2 million to be placed by the underwriter, CPS Capital Group Pty Ltd.

White Cliff’s managing director Todd Hibberd said, “The company is very pleased with the strong response to the rights offer and is now debt free.

“We are working to advance the Aucu Gold Project where the focus is on adding further resources and the Coronation Dam Cobalt-Nickel Project where the company will calculate a maiden resource.”

The allocation of shortfall shares is expected to occur at the same time as rights issue acceptances are allocated.

As well as work at Aucu and Coronation Dam, funds will be used to repay debt and for general working capital.
