Diatreme Resources (DRX) has entered into a trading halt as it plans a capital raise.

It is currently not known how much the company is aiming to raise or what for, however, Diatreme has indicated a corporate transaction is also about to be announced.

Under the halt, company shares will be paused until Monday, June 27, or when further details about the raise are released to the market, whichever one comes first.

Diatreme is an emerging Australian producer of mineral sands, with its flagship project Galalar silica project located around 200 kilometres north of Cairns.

For the March quarter, the company burnt $462,000 in operating activities and spent $1.6 million in exploration and evaluation.
