Asiamet’s existing cash resources of US$2mln will be combined with the new money, to support a significant new programme of works.

Around US$4.7mln will be earmarked for increasing ownership at Beutong and accelerating drilling at the property, with US$2.5mln set aside for regional exploration on the KSK Contract of Work.

In addition, US$3.3mln will be used to commence optimisation and early works in relation to BKM and completion of the bankable feasibility study.

Finally, US$1.5mln will be set aside for general working capital purposes, including the costs of the placing.
