The following is a round-up of updates by London-listed companies, issued on Tuesday and not separately reported by Alliance News:

----------

Panther Metals PLC - Canada-focused mineral exploration company - Announces updated JORC compliant 102.8 million tonne mineral resource estimate for the Coglia nickel-cobalt project in Western Australia. Looks forward to the proposed scoping study as this should highlight to the market the value the company has created in the ground over the last two years at Coglia. Explains MRE represents a 30% increase in total nickel tonnes in comparison to the maiden 2022 MRE. Says confidence in the resource has greatly increased. Further, announces an extension to the Obonga project purchase agreement with Broken Rock Resources Ltd over the Obonga Project in Ontario, Canada. This allows for an additional year to meet the exploration commitment announced in 2021.

----------

Tern PLC - London-based investor in early-stage ’internet of things’ technology businesses - Announces that InVMA Ltd, which trades as KonektioTM has been placed into administration. In November, Tern said it had decided not to invest further in Konektio and following this decision, 75% of Tern’s holding in Konektio was transferred into a valueless class of Konektio deferred shares. Notes at November 29, Tern’s 8.8% holding in Konektio’s equity had an unaudited book valuation of £222,624. Tern directors believe that it is unlikely that any value will be realisable from the holding and therefore it will now be held at zero value. Company says it is ‘disappointing’ but it was clear to the Tern board that the Konektio business had ‘lost focus’ in the second half of 2023.

----------

Cindrigo Holdings Ltd - Guernsey-based renewable energy company - Says subsidiary Dravacel Ltd has applied for a further six month extension to the exploration licence at its Slatina 3 geothermal project in Croatia which, when granted, will extend the expiration of the licence to the end of October 2024. Expresses confidence that it has demonstrated that sufficient work has been done to demonstrate its commitment and belief in the commercial viability of the project, and that the licence extension will be granted shortly. Further, says Tri Ri Asset Management and Cindrigo agree to postpone drawdown of funds from TRAM for Slatina 3 development, under the £10 million convertible loan with TRAM until the licence extension is granted. Cindrigo believes that once the extension is granted, and funds are drawn down and work recommences, it will have sufficient time and remain in a position to progress the project to the exploitation phase.

----------

Ondine Biomedical Inc - Vancouver-based life sciences company - Announces partnership with the York Health Economics Consortium to evaluate the use of Ondine’s light-activated antimicrobial, Steriwave, to reduce the incidence of surgical site infections.
