Each new share will have an attaching option exercisable at 0.055 cents each, expiring in December 2024 on a 1:3 basis.

Peak Asset Management acted as Lead Manager to the placement. It will be paid a fee of six per cent on the funds raised, as well as 15 million options exercisable at 0.055 cents each, expiring in December 2024.

Shareholders can expect a strong news flow from the company in the coming months, covering the progress of Castle’s evolving projects.
