Commitments for $1.8 million placement
Alice Queen recently received binding commitments for a $1.8 million placement to progress gold work at its Horn Island Project in Queensland, recent Fijian acquisition and its Northern Molong Project in NSW.
The placement has been managed by Fresh Equities Pty Ltd and was strongly supported by major shareholder Datt Capital.
Proceeds will be used to assess the value of the historic run of mine and ore stockpiles at Horn Island via a planned RC drill program along with progressing the review of historical exploration results at Fiji and to start a maiden preliminary field program.
The funds will also be used for an ongoing review of recently completed exploration programs and future planning in the Molong Volcanic belt in NSW, and for general working capital.
