At present, approximately 30% of NexGen’s outstanding share capital is held by investors in the region. Given the stage of the Company’s development, the exceptional economic strength of the Rook I Project, and the accelerating demand for the responsible production of clean energy worldwide, it is time to broaden the exposure of NexGen through a dual listing onto the ASX.”
