The Dateline Resources Ltd (ASX: DTR) share price has been placed on ice today.

This comes after the mineral exploration company’s shares rocketed 33.64% to 14.7 cents during early morning trade.

Why are Dateline Resources shares frozen?

Investors will have to wait for a pending announcement by the company before Dateline Resources shares reopen for trading.

According to the release, the company is preparing to make an announcement in relation to a capital raising.

Management advised it needs the “necessary time to plan and secure commitments from sophisticated and professional investors.”

As such, the requested trading halt will remain in place until Thursday 9 June or following the release of the announcement, whichever comes first.

A possible catalyst as to why Dateline Resources shares surged earlier today could be investor excitement regarding the company’s drilling results.

Yesterday, Dateline Resources received the final assay results for drill hole CM22-05 at its Colosseum gold project in California.

The highlights included a strike of 100.6 metres at 4.16g per tonne of gold from a depth of 79.24 metres.
