Galileo said the proceeds of the placing would be used to produce an independent resource estimate for the Star Zinc project as well as a preliminary pit design and the application for a small-scale mining permit.

The share placing follows an update for the project in December, when the company said a non-JORC conceptual grade tonnage estimate from phase two drilling August suggested the project’s maiden resource estimate would be a larger tonnage and contained metal at lower grade than previously announced.

Colin Bird, Galileo’s chairman, said the funds would allow the company to “add further value to what is undoubtedly a significant project with potential for early production”.

“The directors believe that the potential ore at Star Zinc lends itself to a simple trucking operation for parties looking to enhance their feedstock with high grade zinc ore and early- stage discussions have started with potential off-take partners."
