Mamba plans $1.15m capital raising

Mamba Minerals plans to raise more than $1 million via a placement and non renounceable rights issue for on-going project cost and evaluation, new project acquisition and to provide further working capital.

The $1.15 million capital raising will be made up of a rights issue of one new share for every two shares held at the record date at 3 cents per share to raise approximately $560,000 and a placement of 18,625,000 ordinary shares at 3 cents per share to raise approximately $560,000.

There will also be a placement of 18,625,000 options to subscribe for a further share at an exercise price of 5 cents per share with an expiry date of 30 June 2013 at an issue price of 0.1 cents per option to raise approximately $19,000.

The rights issue is not underwritten, but the Directors and IOC will reserve the right to place and shortfall within a period of 3 months following the close of the offer period.

The company is in discussion with potential new joint venture partners and should these be successful, Mamba expects to be mining in 2010 or a potential buyout may result.
