Mr. Brett Boynton, Managing Director – Tectonic Gold Plc
“Earlier this week we met with warrant holders and explained the need for funding in the order of £500,000 to complete the next phase of the technical program at Specimen Hill. In order to minimise dilution and prevent any pressure of the share price we negotiated with warrant holders an option to exchange any unexercised 0.7p warrants for a 1.4p warrant with a 28 February 2022 exercise date. Warrant holders entering a voluntary 12 month restriction on exercised warrants have been offered a one for two 1.4p warrant with a 28 February exercise date.
We are very grateful for the immediate support from our warrant holders and are extremely grateful for the opportunity to get back into the field so quickly after our initial success. Specimen Hill is shaping up to be a world class discovery and we need to extend the drilling along the 5km+ strike zone with increased density to work this up into a meaningful resource. In addition we have brought in one of Australia’s leading independent consulting groups, Geos Mining, to provide modelling so that we can formally engage with majors such as our northern neighbour Rio Tinto, and regional heavyweights, Newcrest, Evolution and South32.
