The additional fundraising comes after the company received significant interest from institutional investors following the funding announced on 15 May 2023. In the initial fundraising, the company raised £1,759,500 before expenses at an issue price of 0.925p per new ordinary share.

The second fundraising was very similar to the first in terms of the price offered to investors, which was nearly the same as the company’s trading price, which explains why there was no significant decline in the company’s share price. 

Premier African Minerals CEO, George Roach, participated in the fundraising by buying 11,891,892 of the placing shares at 0.925p each for a total of £110,000, bringing his total shareholding in the company to 1,628,406,099, translating into a 7.1% stake in the firm.

PREM intends to use the funds raised to assist with further operational funding of the ongoing optimisation operations at Zulu and general working capital purposes necessary for the Group. 

The additional interest from institutional investors speaks to the quality they see in the Zulu lithium and tantalum project being operated by PREM. The Zulu project is regarded as a world-class lithium resource, hence, the investor interest. 

PREM also announced that it had appointed CMC Markets as its joint broker.
