Latin Resources directors show support for move into gold sector through SPP participation

Latin Resources Ltd (ASX:LRS) (FRA:XL5) directors have demonstrated their support for the companys recent move into the gold sector by participating in a share purchase plan (SPP).

Non-executive chairman David Vilensky, managing director Chris Gale and non-executive director Brent Jones have taken up their part entitlement in the SPP which closed heavily oversubscribed to the tune of 83% above the target.

Buoyed by strong support


The company is buoyed by the very strong support to the SPP which was set up to raise $627,000, however, applications received totalled more than $1.15 million.

On July 17, Vilensky acquired 545,092 shares in an indirect interest with that interest now holding 1,681,579 shares.

Also, on that date, Jones 545,092 acquired ordinary shares in an indirect interest with 2,361,528 shares now held in that interest and a further 361,459 in another indirect interest.

Gales participation amounted to 545,093 shares in an indirect interest.

There are now 1,124,622 now held in that interest with 635,656 held in another indirect interest.

Scale-back completed


After receiving applications for a total of 230.16 million shares, the company has completed a scale-back of applications equally on a pro-rata basis.

The SPP response is a strong endorsement of the companys recent move into the gold sector by way of an earn-in agreement covering the highly prospective Yarara Gold Project in the prolific Lachlan Fold Belt of NSW.

Last month the company signed a binding farm-in terms sheet with Mining and Energy Group Pty Ltd (MEG) to earn up to a 75% interest in the project near Albury in southern NSW.
