The Company also intends to offer all eligible shareholders the opportunity to participate in the capital raising via a $1.0 million Share Purchase Plan on the same terms as the Placement (SPP).
Resolution is very pleased to have cornerstone support of the leading North American gold fund, Palisades Goldcorp Ltd, in the placement. PAC Partners and Taylor Collison acted as joint lead managers to the Placement.
Participants in the Placement will also receive options to acquire Shares, on a one (1) for one (1) basis with an exercise price of $0.12 per Share and expiring 3 years from the date of issue (Options). The offer of Options will also be extended to SPP participants. The issue of Options will be subject to shareholder approval and, subject to ASX approval, Resolution will seek quotation of the Options. The Options will be issued with disclosure via a “cleansing prospectus” to be issued by the Company in due course.
Funds received from the $3.6 million Placement and $1.0 million SPP will be used to test high priority drill targets across the 64North Project adjacent to Northern Star’s Pogo mine (ASX:NST).
