As Transaction, Eclipse will get 60% of completely paid ordinary shares in the buyer company Oz Yellow upon listing on the ASX.

Bottom Line:

The successful divestment of Eclipse’s non-core uranium assets will allow the Company to focus its financial and technical resources on notable assets in Greenland and Australia. The transaction will focus on the exploration and development of the NT Projects. This will help Eclipse develop other projects, including the notable Ivittuut Project in Greenland.

This can serve as an extraordinary opportunity for the EPM to maximise shareholder value in non-core uranium assets.
