Maronan Metals Ltd (ASX: MMA) (Maronan or the Company) is an Australian mineral explorer focused on realising the growth potential of the advanced Maronan Silver-Lead and Copper-Gold deposit in the Cloncurry region of Northwest Queensland.


The Maronan Project is one of Australia’s largest and highest-grade, undeveloped silver resources located just 90km north of the giant Cannington Silver-Lead-Zinc Mine.


Maronan is pleased to announce that it has received firm commitments from professional, institutional and sophisticated investors to raise approximately $5.65 million (before costs) through a share placement (Placement).


In conjunction with the Placement, the Company will also offer eligible shareholders the opportunity to participate under a Share Purchase Plan (SPP) on the same terms as the Placement to raise up to an additional $1.5 million (before costs).


Placement Details

The Placement was supported by new institutional and sophisticated investors and existing shareholders.


The Placement was conducted at an issue price of $0.24 per share, a 16.2% discount to the 5-day volume weighted average price and a 20.0% discount to the last traded price on Monday, 13 May 2024.


Under the Placement, the Company will issue a total of 23,545,168 fully paid ordinary shares (New Shares), being 8,750,334 New Shares under ASX Listing Rule 7.1 and 14,794,834 New Shares under ASX Listing Rule 7.1A.

In the event that less than $1.5 million is applied for under the SPP by Eligible Shareholders, the Directors will, in their absolute discretion, seek to place that number of SPP Shares at the SPP Share Issue Price to raise $1.5 million when combined with the amount raised under the SPP (“Shortfall Offer”).


The terms and conditions of the SPP will be set out in an SPP offer booklet for the SPP Shares (SPP Booklet) to be lodged with ASX on Friday, 24 May 2024. Participation in the SPP is optional and the Company reserves the right to scale back any applications under the SPP or to raise a higher amount (subject to the Listing Rules).
