Earthworks in preparation for drilling of Lake Blue Energy’s (LKO) Wellesley-2 gas well in Queensland have commenced, satisfying a key requirement for trading of the company’s securities to resume.

The earthworks involve construction of a drill pad, cellar and mud pond, as well as formation of an access track to the drill site.

Drilling of the Wellesley-2 well is expected to begin with Easternwell’s Rig #101 this month and take 10 to 14 days.

Commencement of the earthworks on December 29 satisfied one of three key ASX-specified pre-conditions for the resumption of trading Lake’s shares.

The remaining conditions require the company to issue a full-form prospectus and raise a minimum of $3.55 million.

The prospectus provides for a general public offer of shares to raise a minimum of $2.404 million and maximum of approximately $4.343 million.

Raising the minimum amount will reportedly be assured through an $800 thousand firm advance subscription commitment and a $1.604 million underwriting commitment.

The company has also secured firm arrangements for the placement of shares, in addition to those to be offered under the prospectus, to the value of $1.146 million.

The firm placements and minimum subscription under the prospectus mean the company expects to raise a minimum of $3.55 million.

Lakes have until February 1 to meet the requirements after the ASX granted the company a further extension of time in December.  

Shares in Lakes last traded on October 30, 2019, at 2 cents.
