Placement raises $6 million
In early September the company received firm commitments from sophisticated and institutional investors for a placement of more than 57 million shares at 10.5 cents each to raise gross proceeds of $6 million.
Strong demand for the placement was fielded from existing and new domestic as well as offshore investors, exceeding the targeted amount.
Proceeds are being used to continue exploration activities at the company’s existing projects in Mali and for general working capital.
Late last month the company resumed drilling following the wet season at Dandoko Gold Project in the Kenieba Inlier of west Mali with a 10,000-metre program.
The company’s board has approved the drilling program comprising aircore, reverse circulation (RC) and diamond core drilling (DD) at Seko prospect ahead of a maiden mineral resource estimate scheduled for completion in Q2 2020.
The program will focus on infill drilling as well as closing off areas of near-surface mineralisation at Seko anomalies and surrounding areas to support the resource estimation work.
The initial aircore phase is expected to be completed about the end of November and, subject to availability, an RC and DD drilling program will follow immediately thereafter.
