Ashanti Headlines

Upcoming IPO | Cobre Limited | Bris/Melb/Sydney Roadshow 26th-29th November

Please see below a summary of Cobre Limited (“Cobre” or “the Company”) and the forthcoming IPO. Ashanti has been engaged as Lead Manager and will be marketing the Company next week in Brisbane on the 26th, Melbourne 27th & Sydney on 28th & 29th November. Please reach out to your adviser ASAP to arrange a time to meet.

Cobre Limited is a Western Australian minerals exploration company focused on the Perrinvale high grade VMS discovery. The Company is seeking to raise A$10 million via the issue of 50m fully paid ordinary shares at $0.20 each as part of its IPO on the ASX in January 2019.

Cobre has attracted a register of resources specialist investors (including London listing Metal Tiger Plc (LON: MTR) as cornerstone investor) to expedite its exploration efforts and to rapidly advance the Company toward the development phase. Metal Tiger will invest a minimum $2m into the IPO at $0.20 with the option to increase this to $2.4m to take MTRs holding to no more than 19.99%. This follows an initial seed investment by Metal Tiger of $500k in August 2019. 

The Company’s main focus is on the 80% owned Perrinvale high grade VMS project, 290 km NW of Kalgoorlie which covers 381km2 across 9 tenements and 4 key prospects (Schwabe, Ponchiera, Zinco Lago and Monti). A maiden RC drilling program completed in June 2019 intersected high-grade volcanogenic massive sulphide (“VMS”) base metal & gold mineralisation at shallow depth. This included drilling 5m @ 9.8% Cu, 3.2g/t Au, 34g/t Ag, 3.1% Zn, from 50m in drill hole 19PVRC002 confirming the Projects potential to become one of the newest VMS discoveries globally.

Investment Highlights:

  • Lack of new quality copper development projects
    • Significant underinvestment in development projects globally over the past 5 10 years
  • Narrowing field of investable ASX listed copper companies
    • Finders, Avanco & MOD acquired by majors or PE in last two years
  • Copper discovery rates at decade lows
    • Increasing amount spent on exploration however new discoveries have fallen away
  • Perrinvale Genesis of new mineral field
    • Maiden drilling program intersected high grade volcanogenic massive sulphide chance of further success significantly greater than greenfields exploration
    • Outstanding exploration upside for additional VMS centres in broader 381km2 Perrinvale land holding
  • Attractive valuation entry point
    • Valuation peer companies trading at significant premiums to Cobre post discovery
