President and CEO Michael Rowley stated, “We are very pleased with the level of interest in the Company and our 2020 program from new investors and existing shareholders alike. The Stillwater West PGE-Ni-Cu-Co project, now owned 100% by Group Ten, offers a rare opportunity to participate in a district-scale asset focused on the delineation and development of strategic commodities, in a productive mining district, in the USA. Proceeds from this placement will complement our in-the-money warrants and cash on hand to drive a more robust drill program at Stillwater West this year, where the technical team is now in place advancing earlier stage targets. We are fully permitted and look forward to providing additional details on our exploration plans, plus updates on 3D models now underway at the most advanced target areas.”
