Commenting on the success of the Placement, Managing Director & CEO, Mr Aaron Revelle, said:

“Pursuit is delighted with the strong support for the placement. This raising will provide critical funding to continue near term high value creating work programs at our Rio Grande Sur Lithium Project in Argentina with our maiden drilling program nearing completion of its first hole, with the second hole to commence immediately after. It is expected that the drilling program will result in a JORC resource upgrade before the end of the calendar year. Additionally, our Pilot Plant continues operations towards the production of our first lithium carbonate. It was again a pleasure working with CPS Capital and Inyati to complete the raising. We look forward to delivering for shareholders and stakeholders through execution of our upcoming significant work programs.”
