Metal Tiger PLC’s (LON:MTR) portfolio firm, metal explorer Cobre, is to float on the Australian Stock Exchange on or around the 31 January.

The total value of Metal Tiger’s 19.35mln shares in Cobre at the IPO price of A$0.20 (10p) per share will be A$3.9mln (£2mln), giving the firm an unrealised paper profit of around A$1mln (£0.52mln).

“We made our initial investment [in Cobre] in September 2019 and consider it a testament to the team at Cobre and their assets that they will have achieved a listing on the ASX only five months after Metal Tiger’s initial investment”, said Metal Tiger chief executive Michael McNeilly.

Cobre has a controlling stake in a group of tenements known as the Perrinvale copper project in Western Australia.

Metal Tiger shares were steady at 1.3p in mid-morning trading on Friday.
