Placement shares will be issued in a single tranche using the company’s existing capacity under the ASX listing Rule 7.1.

“Well placed” to continue work in west Mali

Oklo’s managing director Simon Taylor said: “The company is delighted with the strong interest shown in this capital raising from existing shareholders, a lot of whom participated on a pro-rata basis and new institutions that we welcome to our register.

“The company is now well placed to continue work over its highly prospective landholdings in west Mali backed by a cash position of around $10 million.

“We look forward to further positive news flow in the months ahead from Dandoko as we advance resource definition drilling, geological modelling and metallurgical test-work at Seko.

“The company also anticipates grant of the Kandiole permit in the coming quarter, which is strategically located 10 kilometres from B2Gold Corp’s (TSE:BTO) Fekola Mine and IAMGOLD Corp’s (TSE:IMG) Boto Project.”

Canaccord Genuity (Australia) Limited acted as lead manager to the placement in conjunction with co-managers Taylor Collison Ltd and Bridge Street Capital Partners Pty Ltd.
