White Cliff Managing Director Todd Hibberd said: "The Company has delivered two significant exploration outcomes this year with a 60% increase in the gold resource at the Aucu gold-copper project in the Kyrgyz Republic (now 3Mt at 5.1 g/t containing 484,000 ounces of gold) and the identification of extensive and high grade cobalt and nickel results from the Coronation Dam project in Western Australia.

Both projects have substantial economic potential and provide a platform for further strong positive news flow and resource updates.

By undertaking a rights issue, all existing shareholders will be given the opportunity to acquire New Shares at the same price with a free attaching option for which the Company will seek ASX quotation. If the maximum funds are raised the Company will be funded such that its primary focus can be on defining cobalt and nickel resources via drilling in WA and defining further gold and copper resources at the Aucu Gold project."
