Details of the offer
The company is issuing 25 million shares at an offer price of AU$0.2 per share to raise a total of AU$5 million (before cost). Before the offer, the company has 10.83 million shares on issue and following the IPO, the total shares on issue will stand at 86.08 million, including 50 million vendor shares and 250,000 broker shares.
Proceeds from the offer
The proceeds from the offer would be utilised towards exploration activities, drilling programs and feasibility studies of the Eyre Peninsula, Franklyn Halloysite-Kaolinite, Campoona Graphite Projects and other ongoing projects.
The funds would also support the company by adding a buffer to the working capital including operational and administration expenditure. The company’s plans for potential acquisitions would also be fulfilled by the capital raised via the IPO.
Risks associated with the company
The company’s tenements are subject to terms and conditions and provisions of the Mining Acts and the company may not be able to renew necessary approvals and licences, which may pose a developmental and exploration risk.
The current COVID-19 pandemic is also a major risk which has resulted in forced closures or travel restrictions in some jurisdictions. Any such action on the company or its contractors could amplify the operational risk.
If we talk about mining companies, ASX is an already crowded market with a plethora of mining firms already listed, ranging from small miners to giants such as BHP Group (ASX:BHP) or Rio Tinto Limited (ASX:RIO). iTech Minerals is set to join the list in October, presenting investors with an added option.
As with any investment, it is better to due your due diligence before investing in a company as there are plenty of options available on the Australian bourse.
