LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 11/29/16 -- Horizonte Minerals Plc, (AIM:HZM)(TSX:HZM) ('Horizonte' or 'the Company') is pleased to announce that, at its General Meeting held earlier today, the resolutions set out in the Notice of General Meeting sent to Shareholders on 1 November 2016 were duly passed and as a result the Company will close its previously announced GBP 9 million placing to fund a Feasibility Study at its 100% owned Araguaia Nickel Project in Brazil ('Araguaia' or 'the Project').

Jeremy Martin, CEO of Horizonte commented, "I am pleased that following approval from shareholders we will now close the GBP 9 million fundraise. The fundraise has demonstrated strong support from both new and existing UK and Canadian institutional investors. The proceeds combined with the existing cash position ensure that we have a robust balance sheet as we start the Feasibility Study on the Araguaia project which we are developing as a Tier 1 nickel project in Brazil.

"Activity is currently underway on the next phase of the permitting to obtain the Installation Licence, as well as a number of the work streams that will link into the Feasibility Study. The main contracts are due to be awarded in Q1 2017 as we work to advance the Project through the Feasibility Stage during the course of 2017. We look forward to keeping shareholders updated with the Company's development."

The past few years have brought a sea change in the way applications are architected, developed, and consumed—increasing both the complexity of testing and the business impact of software failures. How can software testing professionals keep pace with modern application delivery, given the trends that impact both architectures (cloud, microservices, and APIs) and processes (DevOps, agile, and continuous delivery)? This is where continuous testing comes in. D
