PERTH, Australia, Dec. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Ironbark Zinc Limited ("Ironbark", "the Company" or "IBG") is pleased to update its shareholders with respect to its recently completed capital raise.
Very strongly supported capital raise completed with $4 million in firm commitments received for the issue of 90,909,091 fully paid ordinary shares at $0.044 per share (Placement)

Funding now in place to proceed with post PPL (Phase 2) Due Diligence with US EXIM and advance the Citronen Project Strategic Equity process
IBG Managing Director Michael Jardine commented:
"Ironbark is now closing 2021 in an excellent position with an EXIM PPL in hand and funding in place to further advance our key value drivers early in 2022.
There was huge demand bid into the book yesterday, in a strong validation of the Company's now advanced financing strategy to get Citronen into production. I am pleased to see certain of our larger existing shareholders add to their position, including IBGs largest shareholder in UK based Bennelong Resource Capital, as well as welcoming several new institutional shareholders to the register.
The timing of this raise, with the holiday season looming, was important in giving the business certainty to proceed at pace in converting the opportunities we have in front of us, and I look forward to updating shareholders with further progress in the New Year."
Use of Funds
The proceeds of the Placement will be used for Phase 2 due diligence with US EXIM, whereby Ironbark is responsible for funding both its own and EXIMs costs, to fund the upcoming strategic equity process and for general working capital purposes.
