The acquisition follows substantial shareholder Resource Capital Fund (RCF) selling its entire stake of more than 191 million shares.

Tribeca was one of a number of Australian and offshore institutions involved in picking up RCF’s shares.

Among the institutions to participate were specialist uranium investment funds and existing institutional shareholders.

 

Bannerman’s CEO Brandon Munro said of this participation that it was a strong signal of the health of uranium investor sentiment.

“Completion of this sale (RCF) underscores the high regard in which Bannerman is held by institutional investors and will provide serious strength to Bannerman’s register.”

Further institutional investors welcomed

Chairman Ronnie Beevor said, “Bannerman is very pleased to welcome further institutional investors to its register.

“The Bannerman board and management team will continue to focus on delivering maximum value for all shareholders from its highly endowed and strategically placed Etango Uranium Project.”

Etango Uranium Project is principal asset

Bannerman’s principal asset is its 95%-owned Etango project in Namibia, near Rio Tinto plc’s (LON:RIO) Rössing uranium mine, Paladin Energy Ltd’s (ASX:PDN) Langer Heinrich uranium mine and CGNPC’s Husab uranium mine.

A definitive feasibility study has confirmed the viability of a large open pit and heap leach operation at one of the world’s largest undeveloped uranium deposits.
