Capital Raises Weekly Wrap - 12/07/2021
In a more subdued market gold and lithium focused companies persist with the raising of capital, with all eight of the mining sector placements being run by companies with gold assets.
(ASX:LTR) and (ASX:SYA) also hold lithium assets and combined raised $90m of the $120m raised in the mining sector this week and 40% of $234m raised across the entire market. Both are seeking to catch the wave of escalating demand for battery metals, by funding the next stages of their lithium assets.
*Placements are limited to those which left a trading halt between 12/07 and 16/07.
Liontown Resources Limited (ASX:LTR) raised $52m via placement with funds to be used to accelerate the development of the Company’s world-class Kathleen Valley Lithium-Tantalum Project in Western Australia (Kathleen Valley) considering strong lithium market conditions.
