The Core Lithium share price has surged 7.8% since last Monday. Right now, Core Lithium’s shares are swapping hands for 34.5 cents apiece.

Let’s take a look at what has the market so enthused about the lithium exploration company.

What’s been happening lately?

The Core Lithium share price has performed well over the past 7 days despite the company’s silence.

The funds raised will go towards exploration, development, and construction at the company’s Finniss Lithium Project.

The share purchase plan follows from Core Lithium’s $91 million institutional placement, which it announced was successful on 11 August.

Under the share purchase plan, Core Lithium shareholders can increase their holdings in the company for 31 cents per additional share.

The share purchase plan was set to close last Thursday. However, the company hasn’t confirmed if that was still the case.

Additionally, Core Lithium had pencilled in its plans to release the share purchase plan’s results tomorrow. Only time will tell if it does.
