Use of Funds
The funds raised under the SPP and the recent Placement are likely to be used to fund the developments around the world-class Kvanefjeld Rare Earth Project. Besides, the funds may support the Company’s working capital as well as pay the costs of the offer.
Managing Director Dr John Mair recently stated that the strong level of investor support is testament to the growing profile of Kvanefjeld, affirming Greenland Minerals’ development strategy.
