The Mt Mulgine Project is located within the Murchison Region of Western Australia, approximately 350km north northeast of Perth. Tungsten Mining has 100% of the tungsten and molybdenum rights on a contiguous group of tenements that have been the subject of significant previous exploration for tungsten and molybdenum.
Two near surface JORC 2012 compliant Mineral Resources have been delineated by previous explorers at the Mulgine Trench and Mulgine Hill deposits. Currently, there is a combined Mineral Resource of 70.9Mt at 0.18% WO3 (0.10% WO3 cut-off) and 230ppm Mo. A breakdown of this resource is presented below in the JORC Resource Statements section.
Historical metallurgical testwork conducted in the 1970s/1980s indicates tungsten is present as coarse-grained scheelite that will respond well to conventional gravity separation and is capable of producing saleable concentrate.
Tungsten Mining is implementing a staged approach to the development of the Mt Mulgine Project that will support low capital start-up costs, directed at demonstrating a (short) pathway to positive cashflow for the project and in turn, Tungsten Mining’s shareholders. Initial work is proposed to build on existing metallurgical test-work results to produce an economic extraction method for WO3 and other valuable metals within the deposits.
