It which approved the issue of 100 million new shares in the company and 200 million options to three Mineral Resources Development group companies (MRDC) and a further 100 million new shares and 200 million options to the National Superannuation Fund (Nasfund). The MRDC Group and NasFund were already major shareholders in the company before those issues. Between them, they are now the majority holders of the company.
