The strategic placement was underpinned by two new cornerstone investors, the Copulos Group, and a principal of Bennelong Asset Management.
Managing Director, Shane Sikora commented "The Company is pleased to welcome the calibre of the two new cornerstones as shareholders. To attract these significant industry investors, and at a 12% premium to the 30 day share price VWAP, represents a major endorsement for Rumble's projects, management team, technical capabilities and importantly the ongoing strategy of generating and drill testing a pipeline of projects capable of high-grade world-class discoveries.
The capital raising puts Rumble in a strong cash position to fast track exploration and execute its strategy. Rumble is highly leveraged to exploration success with nine near term exploration catalysts over the coming months providing multiple opportunities for world-class discoveries.
Excitement continues to build with drilling set to commence imminently at the Panache Ni-Cu-Co-PGE-Au Project in Sudbury, Canada. Since 1883, the Sudbury Mining Field has been the second largest supplier of nickel ore in the world with over 1.7 billion tonnes of past production, reserves and resources. Rumble is drill testing two compelling side by side conductors that are located below a large exposed mineralised gossan, targeting massive Ni-Cu-Co-PGE-Au Deposits. With nickel prices at a four year high, we believe a new discovery in the world's second largest nickel district would present a near term significant re-rating opportunity for shareholders."
