Completion of the Transaction occurred on 7 July 2023 (refer ASX release 7 July 2023). Now, Venus has become a major shareholder of RXL with 17.9%. In addition, 55m RXL shares were distributed (In-Specie Distribution) to Venus shareholders.

The Li anomaly (>110ppm) measures approximately 1.4km x 0.4km with a maximum Li concentration in the ultrafine soil fraction of up to 305ppm and is located near an interpreted c. 45km long "pegmatite trap zone" that wraps around the western margin of the Youanmi greenstone belt and the Youanmi intrusion. Follow-up sampling and field mapping are planned.
