Whitebark is now finalising its review of the oil field, which includes an assessment of booked 1P and 2P reserves currently being audited by an SPE accredited competent person in Canada.

Placement participants will also receive one free attaching option for every two placement shares subscribed for, which will be exercisable at $0.002 per share with a two-year expiry.

Placement proceeds are to be applied to:

  • The cash component of the acquisition of the Wizard Lake Oil Field; and
  • General working capital requirements.

The placement shares and placement options were issued out of Whitebark’s available placement capacity under Listing Rule 7.1.
