Rafaella Resources (RFR) has successfully completed a placement and raised approximately $1.2 million.

The company entered a trading halt on Monday but did not disclose how much it intended to raise or what the funds would be used for once received.

Rafaella will also undertake an eight-tonne bulk sample of near-surface ore to focus on enhancing recoveries. A 70 per cent recovery has already been determined.

In regards to its Canadian assets, Rafaella intends to fly a low-frequency heli-electromagnetic survey in Q1 2021.

“The support of our investor base and the addition of some new long-term investors is much appreciated as we look to advance two very exciting project, providing us with a strong program for the start of 2021,” Managing Director Steven Turner said.

Rafaella is up 3.03 per cent on the market and shares are trading at 6.8 cents at 2:13 pm AEDT.
