AfriTin officially changes name to Andrada

January 11, 2023

Technology metals mining company AfriTin Mining has officially changed its name to Andrada Mining, according to a statement from the Registrar of Companies in Guernsey, where the company is registered.

 The change of name went into effect on January 11, and the company is now conducting its business under the new name.

The new name, Andrada, reflects the company's diversification and expansion of its resources beyond tin production. It also pays homage to Brazilian mineralogist and professor José Bonifácio de Andrada e Silva, who first discovered petalite and spodumene, two minerals that are major lithium-bearing and a precursor to the identification of lithium.

The company's management is particularly excited about the potential of the Uis license in Namibia, which they believe could host a globally significant lithium resource.

"I’m delighted to confirm the company’s change of name and we look forward to rebranding as Andrada Mining. The company’s potential lithium resource size in Namibia is exciting, and the change of name reflects the importance of it within our growing production profile, beyond our existing tin operation. We look to the future as Andrada Mining plays its part in the energy transition,” said Andrada's CEO Anthony Viljoen.

The name change is a signal of the company's strategic focus on lithium and tantalum resources alongside its ongoing tin production and looking ahead to future growth in those segments of industry and positioning itself as a key player in the transition to clean energy.
