New Century chooses equity over Sprott debt

The company claims the placement - to be priced at A$1.15 per share and underwritten by Credit Suisse - gives it greater financial flexibility "given the restrictions on timing of the use of funds and other encumbrances required as part of a senior, secured debt facility with Sprott".
