Copperstone announces its intention to carry out a directed new share issue of B-shares corresponding to a value of approximately SEK 20 million, with deviation from existing shareholders’ preferential rights, based on the authorisation granted by the annual general meeting held on 14 May 2019 (the ”Directed Share Issue”).

The bookbuilding procedure may, at the discretion of the Company or ABG Sundal Collier, close earlier or later and may be cancelled at any time.

The Company intends to use the proceeds from the Directed Share Issue for:

  • Viscaria, Kiruna: intensified core drillings as well as environmental and tailings studies
  • Copperstone project, Arvidsjaur: geophysical investments as well as further exploration work

The Directed Share Issue is subject to a resolution by the board of directors of Copperstone, pursuant to the issue authorization given by the Annual General Meeting on 14 May, 2019 to issue new B-shares, following the close of the bookbuilding.
