Galena Mining's $12 million placement testament to strength of Abra Base Metals Project

Participation by existing and several new high-quality institutional investors provides a strong financial platform to complete the Abra debt financing process.

Galena Mining Ltd - Galena Mining raises $12 million to advance optimisation drilling at Abra Base Metals Project
The placement was significantly oversubscribed

Galena Mining Ltd (ASX:G1A) has accepted binding commitments for a placement of 57.15 million shares at an issue price of 21 cents per share to raise $12 million before costs.

The placement was significantly oversubscribed and well supported by existing and new investors including high-quality institutional investors.

These funds will provide the company with a strong financial platform on which to complete the Abra Base Metals Project debt financing process and help it to maintain a strong working capital position.

Funds will also be allocated to undertake optimisation drilling at the project ahead of underground mining and to drill the newly interpreted target for gold and copper mineralisation for the first time.

Testament to the project's appeal

Managing director Alex Molyneux said the strong institutional support was a testament to Abra’s appeal as a low-risk, high-return base and precious metals project.

“We look forward to progressing optimisation works in parallel with the debt financing process before mining commences.”

Galena’s largest holder and strategic investor Tim Roberts subscribed for 11.15 million shares to maintain his pro-rata shareholding at around 20%.
