In addition to these investments, the Company also continued its field exploration activities at its 100%-owned Perrinvale Project in Western Australia to define new VHMS targets to explore.
Cobre also commenced its maiden JV drilling program in Botswana, which is currently ongoing, and also invested A$1.0M into ASX and London AIM listed, Metal Tiger plc (Metal Tiger) to show commercial alignment of interest as we jointly pursue exploration opportunities in Africa.
On the corporate front, Cobre also undertook a two tranche capital raise of A$6.7 million in April 2021 via a first tranche of A$5.3M which is complete, with the second tranche of A$1.4M to be invested by the Company's largest shareholder, Metal Tiger, subject to the approval of shareholders pursuant to resolution 3 today.

Cobre's vision is to explore and discover new copper deposits to fuel the decarbonisation revolution the world is currently experiencing. The Company has a clear pathway to discovering new deposits through its copper and base metals assets and will continue to make additional acquisitions and investments where the Board believes that such acquisitions are in alignment with the Company's strategic direction and represent the best opportunities for the Company's shareholders.
