The financing was arranged and facilitated by Palewater Advisory Asia Limited in Hong Kong.

The Senior Partner & President of Milost Global Asia, Dr. Chin Yew Seah stated, “Milost Global has always placed its focus on the mining sector through our deals in Africa, but having the opportunity to work with one of the largest fluorite producers in Asia not only represent an exciting opportunity as China is already the largest consumer of this product and Mongolia will soon become the largest producer of fluorspar mining in the world. River One Resources is just one of the such companies that we want to partner with to grow in this sector. By providing the capital need for the expansion, they will become one of the world’s largest producers of finish fluorspar products, with a capacity in excess of 200,000 tons.”
