Funds will be used to advance diamond drilling program and metallurgical test work

Comet Resources Ltd (ASX:CRL) has now completed its share placement raising $1.125 million through the issue of shares priced at 3 cents with a one-for-two 6 cent option expiring June 2021.

Funds will be used for a diamond drilling program to infill and extend the high-grade component of the existing resource and recently made discoveries at Springdale.

The 15.6 million tonnes grading 6% total graphitic carbon (TGC) resource includes a high-grade core of 2.6 million tonnes trading 17.5% TGC.

The diamond core will also be used to conduct metallurgical test work to optimise the processing circuit to produce a high-grade graphite concentrate.

READ: Comet Resources to explore large target adjacent to Springdale graphite resource

Recently, Comet identified a large graphite exploration target adjacent to the existing resource at the Springdale Graphite Project.

With the new target appearing to be a repeat of the graphite-bearing stratigraphy that hosts the resource, Comet is confident of building on the Springdale asset.

The project already has an inferred resource of 15.6 million tonnes at 6% Total Graphitic Carbon (TGC), including a high-grade portion of 2.6 million tonnes at 17.5% TGC.

Proactive caught up with Comet in May 2019 for an update.
