Managing Director and CEO Peter Harold says this placement provides the company will enough money to speed up its exploration activities at Black Swan and explore the Southern Terrace.

“Funds will be allocated to completing the Golden Swan drill drive, the Golden Swan resource drilling program, further exploratory drilling and EM surveys within the Southern Terrace and Resource to Reserve conversion drilling of the Silver Swan Resource,” he said.

“All these activities are aimed at building a sufficient high-grade inventory at Black Swan to allow mining to recommence after a 10-year hiatus. We are very excited about the potential of the Southern Terrace and thank Morgans for their assistance with this placement,” he added.

Notably, Poseidon’s two major shareholders did not participate in the placement.
