Galena’s managing director Alex Molyneux said: “Craig will be a great asset to Galena during the phase of finalising project financing debt facilities and then into the construction and production phases for our Abra Base Metals Project, where experienced financial stewardship will be an important element to maximising shareholder returns.”

Project development drilling at Abra continues following recent results confirming and extending high-grade mineralisation in the Apron Zone.

The drilling results to date have highlighted the potential to improve the geological confidence of the Abra JORC resource.
