As announced on 14 January 2019 the Board of Ascent has resumed its previous strategy to expand its interests beyond Slovenia while continuing to focus on a way forward to develop the significant reserves at Petišovci to deliver growth to its shareholders. 

 

The Company will use the funds raised for general working capital, to develop the Petisovci project and to progress a number of identified opportunities to grow the Company outside of Slovenia.
