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.
