Exploration company Octanex (OXX) has placed its shares in a trading halt ahead of an approaching capital raise.

The ASX-lister announced to the market its shares would remain in the trading halt until Wednesday, May 5, or when a formal disclosure regarding details of the raise is made.

There’s been no clear indication as to how much Octanex is looking to raise or how it plans to spend the proceeds, however, the company advised Fresh Equities had been appointed to assist with the raise.

Earlier this year, OXX was granted three further exploration licences at its 2587-square-kilometre Sefton Project in the Great Victoria Desert between the Laverton and Yamarna Greenstone Belts in Western Australia.

In its most recent quarterly report, the company flagged a near-term objective to complete target generation to identify priority structural targets for early drill and
geochemical evaluation.

Although advising its focus is on gold, the company said it maintains an “opportunistic multicommodity approach” to its exploration.

Prior to the trading halt, Octanex shares last traded at 5.9 cents in a $14.3 million market cap.
