Cobre Limited Equity Placing

Metal Tiger plc (AIM:MTR), the London Stock Exchange AIM listed investor in natural resource opportunities, is pleased to announce that it has subscribed for 8,311,765 new ordinary shares in ASX listed Cobre Limited (“Cobre”) at a price of AUD0.17 per share, for a total investment of approximately AUD1.413m, as part of Cobre’s AUD6.7m fundraise (the “Fundraise”) announced on 15 April 2021. This follow-on investment is subject to Cobre shareholder approval.

The funds raised by Cobre will be used primarily to finance exploration drilling activities for Kalahari Metals Limited (“KML”), the copper-silver exploration joint venture with Metal Tiger in the highly prospective Kalahari Copper Belt in Botswana.

Subject to Cobre shareholder approval, following completion of the Fundraise, Metal Tiger will hold 34,318,728 shares in Cobre representing approximately 20.72% of its issued share capital, in addition to its current 50.01% joint venture interest in KML. Subject to obtaining change in control approval from the Minister of Mineral Energy and Water Resources of the Republic of Botswana in respect of the KML group, Cobre will issue a further 445,368 new Cobre shares to the Company and Metal Tiger’s interest in KML will reduce to 49%.

Furthermore, Metal Tiger holds a 2% net smelter royalty over all KML’s wholly owned licences (unconditional following completion of the recent transaction with KML), being seven licences covering, in aggregate, 6,650km2. It is anticipated that most of the upcoming drilling will be on the areas of KML covered by the 2% net smelter royalty.

For the 6 months ending 30 December 2020, Cobre reported a net loss of AUD608,800 and, as at 30 December 2020, reported net assets of AUD8,805,549.

Michael McNeilly commented:

“We are pleased to have supported Cobre in this equity fundraise which allows the commencement of an extensive programme of exploration drilling activities at our Kalahari Metals joint venture with Cobre. Metal Tiger shareholders will be well positioned to benefit from any upcoming exploration success at Kalahari Metals through its 49% joint venture interest, its 21% equity interest in Cobre, and its 2% net smelter royalty.

We look forward to updating shareholders in the near future as we progress these exploration activities.”
