More specifically, IML anticipates funds will be used for aero-magnetic survey work, drilling, sampling, a survey of dredging locations and a geological resource report to support the eventual licence application.

There are hopes to source a further US$3.5M (around A$4.7M) via a second tranche, with an upcoming third tranche for an unconfirmed amount.

Initial trenching and sampling has been completed at Savanne, with additional gold-bearing areas identified in close proximity, according to the company.

Company structure and ownership is set to undergo a reshuffle as a result of the private placement.

Intrafrican’s interest in the Minas Do Lurio Gold Project is currently held via another unlisted Mauritian company, Intra Minerals.

Intrafrican will lose its status as a wholly-owned subsidiary of IEC following the placement, however IEC is expected to retain its controlling interest.

Further details can be found in the company’s investor presentation.

Shares have rocketed up 85.7 per cent following the announcement and are trading at 1.3 cents apiece at 11:13 am AEDT.
