This raise was overwhelmingly supported by new and existing investors alike, and I want to personally thank everyone for their support. We look forward obtaining our permits to commence our trenching, bulk sampling, met testing and drilling programs as we look to maintain our position as the most advanced ASX listed Niobium and Tantalum exploration company in Brazil.”
