Invictus Energy Limited (ASX:IVZ) has released its quarterly activities report, for the quarter ending June 2018.
SG 4571: Zimbabwe Gas-Condensate Exploration Project
In the quarter, the company announced it had entered into a binding sale and purchase agreement to acquire 100% interest in Invictus Energy Resources Pty Ltd giving it an 80% interest and operatorship in the SG4571 Permit (Cabora Bassa Project) located in Zimbabwe.
The Cabora Bassa Project includes the Mzarabani Prospect, a TCF+ (trillion cubic feet) conventional gas-condensate target.
The Mzarabani prospect is defined by data acquired by Mobil in the early 1990s that includes seismic, gravity, aeromagnetic and geochemical data.
IVZ also successfully completed a heavily oversubscribed A$4.5 million capital raising led by Ashanti Capital to fund the SG 4571 exploration program, with the company’s own directors participating in the capital raise, which was finalised and announced in June. IVZ reported having A$4,302,000 in cash (and cash equivalents) as at the end of the quarter.
It should be noted that IVZ is an early stage play and anything can happen, so seek professional financial advice if considering this stock for your portfolio.
Progress on Zimbabwe project
During the quarter IVZ received the necessary Zimbabwe in-country approvals, from the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe Exchange Control Authority and Zimbabwe Investment Authority (ZIA) to subscribe for new shares representing 80% of Geo Associates (Private) Limited which holds 100% of SG 4571.
The receipt of the Zimbabwe Investment Licence formalises the approval of IVZ’s entry into Zimbabwe as a foreign investor.
Geo Associates and IVZ also received letters supporting the Cabora Bassa Project transaction from the Ministry of Mines and Mining Development and the Ministry of Energy and Power Development.
The company held an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) on 15 June 2018 to obtain shareholder approvals for the transaction, associated capital raise and issue of new securities — with all resolutions being approved.
