Arafura Resources Ltd (ASX:ARU) has received $23.2 million in total funds from the completion of its 7-for-20 rights issue priced at 8.5 cents.

Funds will be used to progress development of the Nolans NdPr Project including project execution readiness to allow award of key design and project management contracts, commencement of front end engineering design work, completion of early contractor involvement phase and the delivery and tender of long lead procurement items and early works construction contracts.

The capital raising will also fund an exploration and metallurgical program aimed at potentially increasing the Nolans Project mine life.

Nolans remains highly leveraged to neodymium and praseodymium prices with every US$5 per kilogram increase resulting in a $A130 million increase to the project valuation.
