Kavango Resources plc (LSE:KAV), the exploration company targeting the discovery of world-class mineral deposits in Botswana, is pleased to announce that it has conditionally raised 3,000,000 before expenses by the issue of 166,666,660 New Ordinary Shares in the capital of the Company (“New Ordinary Shares”) at a price per share of 1.8 pence.

Fundraising

The 158,555,555 New Ordinary Shares have been conditionally placed by First Equity Limited (“First Equity”), on behalf of the Company with institutional and other investors, including high net worth and retail investors (the “Placing”).

The Placing includes one strategic cornerstone investor, who subscribed for over half of the Placing amount.

In addition to the Placing, the Company has also conditionally completed a direct subscription (the “Subscription”) for the issue of 8,111,105 New Ordinary Shares.

Each New Ordinary Share has, on a one-for-one basis, a warrant attached exercisable at 3p for a term of 24 months from the date of issue. Issue of the warrants will require the approval of shareholders and details of a general meeting at which such approval will be sought will be sent to shareholders in the near future.

Further details of the Placing and Subscription, including the expected date of admission of the New Ordinary Shares (“Admission”), will be set out in a prospectus (“Prospectus”) to be published in electronic form and available on the Company’s website.

Ben Turney, Chief Executive Officer of Kavango, commented:

“I am delighted to announce the successful completion of this £3million fund raising for Kavango, a transformational financing for the Company.

Supported by many existing shareholders and new investors, we are now empowered to drive forward a dramatic exploration programme across our portfolio. Our current key focus is on our Kalahari Copper Belt interests, where the drilling programme is underway.

We are now fully funded for our ambitious plans through 2023 and are in an excellent position to achieve our goal of becoming the leading minerals exploration company in Botswana.”
