Rafaella Resources has completed the acquisition of Galicia Tin and Tungsten SL and is now the owner of Santa Comba tungsten project.

Managing Director Steven Turner is pleased the acquisition has been completed.

"The Board has worked diligently to ensure that the transaction has closed quickly and with the recent capital raise, the Company is now well-positioned to focus on the delivery of the Santa Comba tungsten project," he said.

Alongside the completion of this acquisition, Rafaella has immediately commenced a feasibility study, appointed a manager and engaged with two leading engineering firms.

The company announced Steven Turner has joined the board as Managing Director and Robert Wrixon as Executive Director
