Coppermoly to raise $2.1 million for Mt Isa exploration

Coppermoly (ASX:COY) is launching a non-renounceable entitlement offer to raise $2.1 million to fund drilling at its Mt Isa Project in Queensland. 

Eligible shareholders will be offered the opportunity to acquire one new COY share for every 3 shares held as of 7:00pm (AEDT) on 9 November 2023 at an issue price of $0.012 per new share. 

The company notes shareholders will be entitled to subscribe for any new shares that are not taken up by other shareholders in accordance with the offer.
