Once completed this will fully fund the Stage 1 Development Plan concentrator and mine development to commissioning, as well as completing the feasibility study, associated drilling, and updated Reserves for Stage 2 of the Development Plan.

A potential further amount of up to $31.5 million will be raised under a one (1) for four (4) Non-Renounceable Entitlement Issue ("Entitlement Issue" or "Offer") at $1.00 per share.

Furthermore, the Company has received intentions to participate for approximately $14 million relating to the Entitlement Issue by its major shareholders and Executive Chair, Milan Jerkovic.

Assuming the full amount of funds are raised (including the Tranche 2 debt funding), combined with the Company's operating cash flows, the use of funds will be as follows:

- Construction and commissioning of Stage 1 concentrator and associated mine development (to reach 120kozpa production);
