Managing director Robert Thomson, chairman Bill Guy, and non-executive directors Brett Tang and Bill Yang each purchased shares.

Thomson purchased $80,000 of shares increasing his stake to 1.26 million shares, Guy purchased $40,000 of shares increasing his stake to 0.79 million shares, Tang purchased $10,000 of shares increasing his stake to 32.8 million shares, and Yang purchased $70,000 of shares increasing his stake to 1.51 million shares.

A recently completed feasibility study for the Theta project confirmed positive economics and the project’s commercial viability.

This is supported by a global mineral resource recently updated to 6.026 million ounces grading 4.18 g/t gold within the greater TGME project in South Africa.

The study, which targets a small portion of the Theta Hill deposit, has forecast a bottom-quartile cost open-pit gold operation.

This starter operation has forecast 200,905 ounces to be produced over five years generating free cash flow of US$65.7 million.
