AVZ’s Managing Director Nigel Ferguson greeted the results, saying:

The Roche Dure prospect continues to impress with excellent drilling results from the last 8 drill holes. These were specifically designed to upgrade resource confidence through resource category upgrades within the pegmatite mineralisation directly below the historical Roche Dure open pit. This data will be used in mining studies that are currently underway as part of the Definitive Feasibility Study.

Investors waiting on outcome of Share Purchase Plan

Some investors may be waiting on the sidelines, waiting for further news on the outcome of the Share Purchase Plan.

The Share Purchase Plan was a capital raise designed to provide further funding to achieve a Definitive Feasibility Study (DFS).

The fact that Mr Ferguson mentioned the DFS could be seen as positive news.

We have previously highlighted how AVZ faces a number of hurdles, not least of which is the current political situation in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

We will keep you updated if more information on the SPP is released.
