Blackstone’s recent two-tranche placement raised $2 million and was well supported by European and Australian investors.

The placement to institutional and sophisticated investors saw 40 million shares issued at 5 cents per share with funds to support exploration.

Blackstone has battery metals interests across three countries – Vietnam, Canada and Australia.

The Vietnamese nickel project, Ta Khoa, is the newest in the portfolio and has potential to be a near-term producer.

In May, the company entered a 12-month exclusive binding option agreement to purchase AMR Nickel Limited’s 90% interest in Ta Khoa.

Proactive caught up with the company in May 2019 to discuss the nickel acquisition.
