Kurt Budge, Chief Executive Officer of Beowulf, commented:

“With limited cash Beowulf has been able to further demonstrate the quality of Kallak North and move closer to what we hope is a positive decision on the Exploitation Concession; news of both developments being well received by the market.

“It is a real challenge to create value without the cash to develop ideas; with the proceeds of this fundraising we can now accelerate the implementation of our strategy.”
