The company said the raising had already received strong support, with “a number of significant Canadian institutions” taking part.
“The placement provides funds to significantly progress work programs at the company’s gold exploration projects in Guyana, and provides working capital and financial security for the company in a turbulent global economic environment,” Azimuth managing director Dominic O’Sullivan said in a statement to the Australian securities exchange.
