As a result of the announcement, the RNX stock increased by 33.333% in the early trading hours on 09 June 2021 at around 10:39 AM AEST, whereas it ended the day’s trade at AU$ 0.006, up by 8.333%.

Strategic rationale behind the acquisition
RNX believes that the transaction is highly strategic for both the parties to the agreement as it establishes a substantial area of interest across the Yandal belt.
STK has planned to execute exploration at the project area and looks forward to kicking off large campaigns in the next quarter.
STK is a mineral exploration company and owns a world-class and highly prospective package of tenements to the north of the present RNX joint venture Yandal Project.

The two project areas, when combined, expand the exposure to around 100km of the substantial controlling feature in the region, the Celia Shear, which accommodates multiple present prospects.
STK is backed by an experienced geology team and is suitably poised and financed to take forward the work initiated by RNX across the Yandal Project. Moreover, STK has the opportunity to leverage off the infrastructure and relationships created by RNX.
Both RNX and STK are looking to expedite the acquisition and are moving to finalise formal documentation in anticipation to conclude the acquisition within a months’ time.
At 12:08 PM AEST, RNX traded at AU$0.006.
