Ashanti Headlines


Please see below a summary of Cobre Limited (“Cobre” or “the Company”) and the forthcoming IPO. Ashanti has been engaged as Lead Manager. The prospectus was lodged on Friday 6th December and we are now seeking bids for the institutional component of the offer. Please reach out to your adviser or the desk on +61 8 6319 7807 to discuss the offer further. 

Cobre Limited is a Western Australian minerals exploration company focused on the Perrinvale VMS prospect.

The Company’s flagship asset, the 80% owned Perrinvale 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 at the Schwabe prospect intersected high-grade volcanogenic massive sulphide (“VMS”) base metal & gold mineralisation at shallow depth. This included drilling 5m @ 9.75% Cu, 3.2g/t Au, 34g/t Ag, 3.1% Zn.

Cobre’s short-term aim is to drill test priority targets identified at Perrinvale which are prospective for VMS mineralization following a recent airborne EM survey.

In addition, Cobre has executed an Earn In and Joint Venture Agreement with private company GTTS Generations Pty Ltd to earn up to an 80% interest in the Sandiman Project. Sandiman is located east of Carnarvon on EL 09/2316 and is considered a prospective sediment hosted base-metals project. Independence Group (ASX: IGO) Lyons River Project surrounds the Sandiman Project.
