  • Gekko will evaluate the potential to build, own and/or operate new regionally based intensive cyanidation facilities,

  • Gekko is assisting Mantle with the evaluation and optimisation of gold processing at Norton and Morning Star.


Capital Raising Initiatives:


Earlier in the year, the Company accepted a total of $150,000 in subscription monies from entities associated with Directors, Mr Martin Blakeman and Ian Kraemer (including $75,000 which was received during the September 2015 quarter) ('Director Placement'). The terms of the Director Placement were identical to those offered to a Sophisticated Investor in January 2015, other than that the Directors' subscriptions were subject to shareholder approval in accordance with the ASX Listing Rules and pending such approval, the subscription monies would remain as unsecured, interest-free loans. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, on 19 October 2015 Shareholders approved the issue of 12,499,500 Shares and 9,375,000 MNMOB Options to those directors pursuant to the Director Placement.


On 7 September 2015, the Company announced that it had issued 5,651,232 fully paid ordinary shares to directors and employees of the Company in lieu of cash remuneration payable for the period 1 January 2015 to 30 June 2015 under the Company's approved Director and Employee Fee Plan.


On 11 September 2015 the Company announced the offer of a pro-rata non-renounceable priority entitlement issue of up to 78,973,425 new options, on the basis of 1 new option for every 1 expired option held by qualifying option holders at an issue price of 0.2 cents per new option, to raise up to approximately $157,947 ('Priority Offer'). The Priority Offer was approved by Shareholders at the general meeting held on 19 October 2015 and subsequently closed on 21 October 2015.


On 28 September 2015 the Company announced that it had issued 20,833,333 ordinary fully paid shares and 15,625,000 options under a placement of $250,000 to an existing shareholder who is both a sophisticated investor and long-term supporter of the Company.


Subsequent to the end of the quarter, the Company has today entered into an agreement with the underwriter of the aforementioned Priority Offer for the issue of a secured, interest-free convertible note with a face value of $185,000. The Convertible Note is convertible at the election of the noteholder at any time during the 12 month term with the conversion price being the lower of 1.5c or the issue price of the Company's next capital raising, together with one free- attaching option (being the new stream of recently issued priority offer options) for every share issued upon conversion.

The Company takes this opportunity to thank its share and option holders, as well as the underwriter of its recent Priority Offer (which is an entity associated with its Joint Company Secretary), for their support of the Company through this exciting period of development
