"We may use the ATM facility as a means to supplement our capital needs if the need arises", said James Bannantine, Great Panther's president and CEO.
"As noted in our previous disclosures, Great Panther is also reviewing and considering other financing options to refinance debt repaid in connection with the acquisition of Beadell, and to fund our projects and investments, and general working capital."
The company boss said these investments included exploration at Beadell's Tucano mine in Brazil, which started shortly after closing the acquisition in March, various Tucano optimization projects, as well as the Topia Mine expansion in Mexico.
On Monday, this week, the miner also told investors it had decided to put its Coricancha gold-silver-lead-zinc-copper underground mine into production.
