Rimfire Pacific Mining NL (ASX:RIM) has completed a $2.6 million capital raising drive after closing a share purchase plan for proceeds of $500,000 with funds to aggressively pursue gold-copper targets in the prolific Lachlan Fold Belt of central NSW. The SPP provided eligible shareholders with the opportunity to subscribe for up to $30,000 of new fully paid ordinary shares in the company, at an issue price of 1.25 cents per new share, subject to any scale back. Rimfire received applications totalling $162,500 from eligible shareholders and the SPP was fully underwritten by Trans Global Capital Ltd, who will subscribe for the remaining $337,500. Proceeds to assist copper-gold strategy Managing director Craig Riley said: “We are thankful for the support of both our shareholders and the underwriter. “The proceeds from the SPP will ensure Rimfire is able to continue execution of our strategy to discover a large-scale copper-gold or gold ore body within our exploration licences in the Lachlan Transfer Zone of the exciting and very prospective Lachlan Fold Belt in central NSW.” The SPP follows a recent placement that was strongly supported by professional and sophisticated investors and raised $2.1 million.
