What will the funds be used for?

Capital from the placement will be used to support acquisition activities for the New Elk coking coal project, located in Colorado in the United States.

In addition, the funds may also support the continued environmental assessment and permitting process at the Tenas Metallurgical Coal Project in Canada, pending a payment from Itochu Corporation.

Placement details

Funds for the $1.98 million placement are due on April 15, 2020 and shares will be allotted the following day.
