The Placement will be undertaken in two tranches subject to the Companys placement capacity.

The Placement is strongly supported by a group of new and existing institutional investors. The Placement is to be cornerstoned by Regal Funds Management, which is expected to hold 13% of the Company, and highly regarded natural resources investor, Paragon Funds Management, will also emerge as a substantial holder.

The calibre of investors attracted to FYIs HPA strategy confirms the Companys work to date and demonstrates support for the delivery of the work program outlined for 2018.

Following the settlement of the Placement, the Company is expected to be fully funded to complete the stated development program of the initial Pre-Feasibility Study (PFS) and other associated project review activities, including permitting, metallurgical test work and HPA product marketing as well as to commence a Bankable Feasibility Study (BFS).

FYI Resources Managing Director, Roland Hill, said: We are extremely pleased with the level of support for the Placement, particularly from our existing institutional shareholder, Regal Funds Management, and new institutions including Paragon Funds Management and others who will join the register.

The funds to be raised will allow us to accelerate the completion of our PFS due to be completed in June Quarter 2018. From the results of our early study work, we expect positive results from the PFS and anticipate being able to immediately advance to a BFS. We believe that both the PFS and BFS studies will be finalised relatively quickly within a respectable budget due to the high quality of the Cadoux feedstock and its excellent amenability and response to our flowsheet combined with the off the shelf standard equipment that will allow FYI to achieve our target product of 4N alumina.

Foster Stockbroking Pty Ltd is acting as Sole Lead Manager to the Placement.
