Advanced gold and copper explorer Alice Queen (AQX) has received binding commitments for a $7 million capital raise.

The capital raise was strongly supported from sophisticated and institutional investors, as well as existing shareholders Datt Capital and Chris Morris.

Furthermore, the raise was led by Evolution Capital Advisors and BW Equities.

To raise the funds, approximately 159 million shares will be issued at a price of 4.4 cents each, an 11 per cent discount to Alice Queen's last closing price.

The shares are expected to be issued in the upcoming days and can be done so without shareholder approval.

Alice Queen will use the $7 million to expand its current drill program at the Boda East Project in NSW, complete phase one reverse circulation infill drilling at the Horn Island pit, and begin drilling at the Mendooran volcanic belt.

In addition to the placement, the lead managers will receive five million options with an exercise price seven cents, and another five million options with an exercise price of eight cents.

All of the options will expire from two years of issue and will be issued without shareholders approval.

"It is very pleasing to have such strong and widespread support for the company, including significant investments from each of our two largest shareholders," Managing Director Andrew Buxton said.

"It is a strong endorsement of our strategy and we thank all of the participants in this placement, both old and new, for their support," he added.

Alice Queen is down 7.14 per cent and shares are trading for 4.6 cents each at 1:32 pm AEST.
