Following the recent capital raising Tungsten Mining is poised to recommence drilling and feasibility studies on its flagship Kilba Project with the intention of transitioning into production in a short time frame.
Tungsten Mining NL (ASX: TGN) is an Australian mineral exploration company focused on the development and exploitation of tungsten projects.
Following the establishment of a maiden JORC resource at its flagship Kilba Project in the Gascoyne region in WA, the company released the results of an in‐house scoping study which indicated a viable and economically attractive project. The project is on a granted Mining License and all environmental studies have been completed. Based on a tungsten price of US$440/mtu APT, average annual production of 154,000 mtu over a 7 year mine life, recovery of 80%, capital cost of A$56m and average LOM operating costs of US$212/mtu, the project NPV7 was $36m. Previous modelling by Breakaway confirmed a valuation in line with the Company’s estimate.
A shortage of funding slowed down activities over the past 6‐9 months, but following the recent capital raising, drilling will re‐commence and full feasibility studies begin.
