As announced on 5 March 2021, Tectonic Gold plc (TDIM: TTAU) has received support from existing warrantholders to exercise the drill warrants issued in September 2020 to raise over £500,000 to fund further drilling by the Company. The Company has received indications for the exercise of over 90,000,000 warrants from the holders of the outstanding drill warrants. It is expected that these warrants will be exercised shortly, and the Company expects to be fully funded for the next drilling programme.
A number of warrant holders have elected to exercise at 31 March 2021, ahead of the tax year end, with others indicating they will fund at the end of the call period, which is 5 April 2021.
