Michael McNeilly, Chief Executive Officer of Metal Tiger, commented:
“We are delighted that Cobre will be listed on the ASX at the end of next week. Metal Tiger has been a key part of this heavily oversubscribed IPO. We made our initial investment in September 2019 and consider it a testament to the team at Cobre and their assets that they will have achieved a listing on the ASX only five months after Metal Tiger’s initial investment. I anticipate that Cobre will commence its drilling and exploration programme at the Perrinvale project on or around the listing date and look forward to seeing the continued progress.”
