The company recently completed an oversubscribed placement raising $3.6 million and will raise a further $8.7 million via a fully underwritten rights issue, for a total of $12.3 million.
The placement was strongly supported, with St Barbara subscribing for $1.8 million at 36 cents per share, and the balance placed to institutional, sophisticated and strategic investors.

The capital raised will fully fund Peel to deliver a maiden JORC Resource at Wagga Tank and advance Mallee Bull towards production.
