Australia-focused gold miner ECR Minerals PLC (LON:ECR) has raised gross proceeds of £1.0mln via an oversubscribed placing of 55.5mln new shares at a price of 1.8p.

The AIM-listed group said the proceeds will be used to "support its continuing activities in Australia and explore new opportunities."
