Premier African Minerals Limited ("Premier" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has today raised by means of a direct subscription £250,000 before expenses at an issue price of 0.02 pence per new ordinary share.
George Roach, CEO, commented: "I expect this will be the last direct placement Premier will need in advance of expectations for the exclusive prospecting order application at Zulu Lithium and Tantalum project, and the ongoing electrification at the RHA Tungsten Mine in Zimbabwe.
At the same time, we are pleased with reports of ongoing increases in production tonnage at Otjozondu Mining in Namibia and we look forward to the possibilities that a closer association with this mine will bring in the future to Premier and its shareholders".
Premier has today issued by way of a placing ("Placing"), conditional on admission, 1,250,000,000 new ordinary shares of nil par value ("Placing Share") at a Placing price of 0.02 pence per Placing Share.

Application has been made for the Placing Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM and admission is expected to take place on or around 3 September 2019. The Placing has been undertaken within the Company's existing share authorities. Premier intends to use the proceeds of the Placing to assist with the ongoing general working capital necessary for the Group.

Following the issue of the Placing Shares, the Company's issued share capital will consist of 11,003,778,500 Ordinary Shares, with voting rights.
