Element 25 Ltd (ASX:E25) (FRA:QFP) has launched a $1.5 million share purchase plan targeted at its existing investors.

Element 25 executive director Justin Brown said today: “The additional funds under the share purchase plan (SPP) will be applied to a variety of purposes.

“Principally (they) will be applied to the completion of the company’s pre-feasibility study (PFS) to assess in more detail the pathway to commercialisation for the company’s 100%-owned Butcherbird manganese resource and for working capital purposes.”

Test work from Butcherbird ore has produced very high purity 99.95% manganese metal.

The company previously known as Montezuma Mining Company (ASX:MZM) has been working towards a 2019 delivery of its PFS for the project.

In April 2019 Element 25 upped the manganese resource for the project by 34% to 26.3 million tonnes.

The offer will open on Friday, while the closing date for subscriptions is May 24, 2019.

New shares are expected to be despatched about May 30, 2019 and traded the next day.
