The company will issue a total of 36.7 million new shares at an average price of 12.3 cents each to institutional, professional and sophisticated investors.

CEO Sam Pazuki said he was pleased with the support seen in the placement.

“This demand highlights the support for and confidence in Matador’s revised strategy that focuses on new major discoveries along one of the largest mineral tenement packages on the multi-million-ounce Cape Ray Shear in Newfoundland, Canada,” he said.

Shares were down 3.7 per cent to 13 cents each at 2:00 pm AEST.
