Haranga Resources (HAR) has listed on the ASX today with a boom, with its shares rising 30 per cent.
The junior explorer has gold assets in Burkina Faso and Còte d’Ivoire, as well as a uranium project in Senegal.
The listing follows a successful initial public offering raising $6.5 million from investors at 20 cents each and has mapped out a two-year plan to develop its projects.
Haranga’s projects include the Issia gold project in Cote d’Ivoire and the Saraya uranium project in Senegal. The company intends to advance both of these projects.
Recent geological studies based on historical drilling at Saraya and historical geochemical surveys at Issia have confirmed their potential.
“This is an exciting opportunity to develop the Saraya and Issia projects, which show good prospects for early exploration success thanks to their locations, results from recent studies and historical data,” Executive Chairman Peter Youd said.
“The Issia Gold Project is located in a prolific gold province with key similarities to adjacent, well-defined gold deposits and is supported by good infrastructure. There has been no historical drilling at Issia.”
“Our Saraya project should be considered both an advanced-stage exploration project and large greenfield exploration project.”
The prospectus was lodged with the Australian Securities and Investment Commission in October 2021.
Currently, over in Burkina Faso, the military forced out president Roch Kabore, suspended the constitution, dissolved the government and the national assembly and closed borders.
Mr Youd said the company’s priority projects were Saraya and Issia, located in Cote d’Ivoire and Senegal.
“We will continue to monitor the situation in Burkina Faso but the exploration permits in this region are not the focus of our company’s efforts,” he said.
On the market today, Haranga was up 30 per cent and is trading at 26 cents per share by the end of the trading day.
