Blencowe Resources #BRES – Strategic Investment by AIM-Listed Jangada Mines plc and Two Existing Major Shareholders

Blencowe Resources Plc (“Blencowe Resources” or the “Company”) (LSE: BRES) is pleased to announce a placing of 18,750,000 new ordinary shares (“Placing Shares”) at 4 pence per share to raise a total of £750,000 (“Placing”) from three existing shareholders. The placees will receive 1 warrant per 2 Placing Shares, exercisable at 8p for 3 years from admission (“Investor Warrants”).


  • £750,000 raised at 4p per share with 3 existing investors
  • Jangada Mines plc to increase holding from 2% to 9.5% of enlarged share capital
  • Existing major shareholders RAB Capital and JUB Capital continue to invest pro rata to their existing 10.0% and 8.2% shareholdings respectively
  • Asset-level transactions now targeted for DFS and ultimate development of Orom-Cross

The Placing was cornerstoned by Jangada Mines plc whom invested £610,000, which has increased their holding from 2% to 9.5%. Also, the Company’s two other largest institutional investors RAB Capital and JUB Capital have subscribed for the remaining £140,000 in the Placing, on a pro rata basis, to maintain their respective 10.0% and 8.2% holdings in the enlarged share capital of the Company following the Placing.

Use of Proceeds

The funds will be dedicated to fund the delivery of a 100 tonne bulk sample from Orom-Cross to China and general working capital.

On 3 October 2022, the Company reported an approach from a potential strategic party looking to undertake further off-site testing ahead of potentially providing an offtake and funding solution for the development of Orom-Cross. This successful capital raise will enable the Company to accelerate the bulk sampling plans and build on the highly encouraging PFS results.

Admission of Shares to Trading

The Company has made an application for 18,750,000 ordinary shares to be admitted to trading on the official list and the London Stock Exchange with effect from 8.00 a.m. on 31 October 2022 (“Admission”).

In accordance with the FCA’s Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules, the Company confirms that following Admission, the Company’s enlarged issued ordinary share capital will comprise 196,679,950 Ordinary Shares. The Company does not hold any Ordinary Shares in Treasury.

Therefore, following Admission, the above figure may be used by shareholders in the Company as the denominator for the calculations to determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in the Company, under the FCA’s Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

Executive Chairman of Blencowe Cameron Pearce commented:

“I am delighted to welcome Jangada Mines as a new significant shareholder in the Company. They share our view of the inherent value of Orom-Cross, which has already returned a NPV of US$482M from a fraction of our broader resource. I would also like to thank our two major shareholders for their continued support and maintaining their holdings through participation in the Placing. At a time when raising capital for junior resource companies remains difficult, we are delighted to have secured funding sufficient to provide working capital for a year at the plc level and also enable us to commence the process to deliver a 100 tonne bulk sample to our potential strategic partner in China.

As we have previously stated, given the substantial disconnect between our market capitalisation and asset value, the focus of the Company is to enter strategic transactions at the asset level for material development, thereby minimising shareholder dilution and capturing a fairer reflection of value. The Company has previously advised it hopes to execute its first asset level transaction in the current quarter, which is expected to provide sufficient funds to complete the DFS. This is running in parallel with the ongoing discussions with our potential strategic partner in China.

I look forward to updating shareholders as appropriate.”
