Landore Resources Limited (LON:LND) has raised £470,000 through a share subscription to fund exploration of its BAM Gold deposit in Ontario, Canada.

The AIM-listed miner said it raised the funds through a subscription of around 64.8mln new shares with certain existing shareholders at a price of 0.725p each, around the same level as it’s last close price.

The shares are due to be admitted to trading on AIM at 8am on 24 September.
