UK-based Vast Resources has signed a preliminary agreement for a proposed investment of up to $10 million (8.57 million) in the mining company, to be used mostly for the expansion of its Romanian operations.

“The funds raised must be used for the Company’s capital expenditure and working capital requirements, mostly for the expansion of the Romanian operations,” the company added.

Stage one will be a direct subscription by the investor for new shares in Vast Resources Romania, which company will hold all Vast’s Romanian assets and would result in the Investor holding 51% of VRR.

Stage 2 would result in the subscription by the investor for a nominal number of further shares in VRR followed immediately by the acquisition of the investor’s entire holding in VRR by Vast for the issue of ordinary shares in Vast at 0.4 pence per share.

Depending on exchange rate fluctuations and share issues through warrant exercises, is estimated to give the investor some 29% of the enlarged share capital of Vast. This stage will require the passing of an ordinary resolution at a general meeting of Vast shareholders.

Vast Resources owns Sinarom Mining Group, the owner of the Manaila polymetallic mine in Romania. Besides Manaila, Vast holds the Baita Plai polymetallic mine in Romania, where work is currently underway towards obtaining the relevant permissions to start developing and ultimately commissioning the mine.
