About Galway Resources Ltd.
Galway Resources is primarily focused on the exploration of gold in northeast Colombia, with drill programs occurring at the California and Vetas gold projects. Galway also has the Victorio molybdenum-tungsten project, with excellent infrastructure, in southwestern New Mexico. A positive scoping study was completed by SRK in 2008. The recent surge in tungsten pricing, coupled with a steady molybdenum price, has prompted management to reassess strategic alternatives to advance the Victorio project.
