Stage two, for a total of 70 per cent interest, 8Au will need to spend a further $900,000 on exploration, within three years of the agreement.

While for the remaining 10 per cent, for 80 per cent of Talga, 8Au will have to spend another $900,000 on exploration.

On the market today, First Au is up 11.8 per cent and is trading at 1.9 cents per share at 2:11 pm AEDT.
