EXTENSION OF FUND RAISE

Altona (AQSE: ANR.PL), a mining exploration company with a new strategic focus on Rare Earth Element (“REE”) mining projects in Africa, announces that it has agreed to extend the current fund raise until Wednesday 11 November 2020, due to ongoing investor interest.

As announced on 24 September, the Company is looking to raise up to £500,000 at a price of 6.5 pence per share, representing a discount of 32% to the current suspended share price of 9.5 pence. The Company will also issue warrants at 12 pence, with one warrant being issued for every two Altona Ordinary Shares subscribed for, with an expiration date of 30 March 2023.

The fund raise is being hosted on NR Private Market (https://www.nrprivatemarket.com), the innovative private investment platform for sophisticated and high net worth investors, and is open to all existing shareholders and non-holders.

The capital will be used primarily to commence an initial exploration drilling programme on two of the African Rare Earth projects the Company is in the process of acquiring. These acquisitions will be paid for using Altona ordinary shares, thereby freeing up cash for operational activities. The funds will also be used to complete final legal due diligence on the acquisitions and for working capital purposes. The Company is expectant that it will shortly be in position to acquire a third Rare Earth mining project, also in Africa, in which it is in advanced negotiations with the current owner.
