The investor, focused in natural resources, said MOD raised $14.6mln in a share placement to institutions and professional traders.
The share placement, which was heavily oversubscribed, will be used to fund the extension of the T3 deposit in the Kalahari Copper Belt of Botswana.
Metal Tiger chief executive, Michael McNeilly, said: “We’re very pleased by the news today from MOD. This financing further validates the exceptional quality of the Botswana project and we are delighted that this raise will further accelerate the joint venture work program on the ground. We look forward to continuing our work with MOD on further exploration of the T3 copper project. ”
The company already had significant exploration success in 2017 with the discovery of multiple copper zones below the existing T3 resource.
Earlier this month, MOD announced an intersection of 72.6 metres at 1.5% copper and 27g/t silver, which included 18 metres at 2.7% copper and 52 g/t silver below the T3 deposit.
Metal Tiger has estimated the total cost of the project will be about US$135mln.
