Alba Mineral Resources plc

("Alba" or "the Company")

 

Placing to raise £750,000

 

Alba Mineral Resources plc (AIM: ALBA) is pleased to announce that it has raised £750,000 (before expenses) through the issue of 227,272,727 new ordinary shares at a price of 0.33 pence per ordinary share (the "Placing"), conditional on the admission of such new ordinary shares to trading on AIM ("Admission").

 

The placing proceeds are intended to be used principally in relation to the following project acceleration activities: at the Company's Clogau Gold Project in north Wales, where work continues in furtherance of the re-opening of the Clogau Gold Mine and where an extensive regional gold exploration campaign is currently being planned following the successful completion of the recent near-mine ground geochemical and geophysical surveys; continued support for the Company's investments in the onshore UK oil and gas sector (including in relation to the planned appraisal test programme at the Brockham Oil Field, and at Horse Hill); furthering and completing analyses at the Company's wholly-owned Thule Black Sands and Inglefield polymetallic projects post this summer's field exploration programmes; drilling one or more targets at the Company's Limerick base metals project; and to bolster the Company's working capital.

 

Admission to AIM

 

Application will be made for the new ordinary shares to be admitted to trading on AIM ("Admission"). It is expected that Admission will become effective at 8.00 a.m. on or around 26 November 2018.  The new ordinary shares will be issued credited as fully paid and will rank in full for all dividends and other distributions declared, made or paid after Admission and will otherwise rank on Admission pari passu in all respects with the existing ordinary shares.

 

Total Voting Rights

 

Following Admission, the total number of ordinary shares in issue will be 3,261,601,946. The Company does not hold any ordinary shares in treasury. Therefore, the total number of ordinary shares with voting rights will be 3,261,601,946.  This figure may be used by shareholders in the Company as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
