CEO Abraham Drost, P.Geo, a Qualified Person under NI 43-101 and CEO of the Company stated that "the second quarter of 2020 was a key period in the evolution of Clean Air Metals as the issue came back to trade on May 22, 2020. On May 27th, the Company announced the $6.7 million flowthrough financing at $0.50 per share which closed on June 16th. The initial financing of $15 million through the issuance of 75 million units at $0.20 per unit was previously announced February 11, 2020. This has left the Company well funded for the ongoing drill campaign, with two drills on the Thunder Bay North Project at the Escape Lake mineralized zone. In addition, the Nordmin Engineering study focused on resource validation and underground mine planning studies on the Current Lake deposit (previously announced on August 11, 2020) is now well underway."
