US Tungsten to Conduct Ground Magnetic Survey Over Calvert Hill Project in Montana

US Tungsten Corporation ("US Tungsten" or "USTU"), is pleased to announce that we have contracted to conduct a ground magnetic survey over the Calvert Hill project in Beaverhead County, Montana. We expect the survey and subsequent evaluation to be completed by the end of October 2013.

The magnetic profile lines will be surveyed with a line spacing of 300 feet and 100 feet at locations specified by the Company. The total program is expected to be approximately 56 line-kilometers. The Total Magnetic Field and Vertical Magnetic Gradient will be measured with a resolution of 0.001 nT. A GPS system capable of XY accuracy of ±2m will be used for navigation and positioning. Deliverables should include diurnally-corrected total magnetic field data, vertical magnetic gradient, all raw and processed data, topo-based line location map, and a brief acquisition report. Delivered data will also include magnetic data Reduced to Pole and derivative, gradient, and residual maps as appropriate.

The data will then be analyzed by our advisors. A projected 2014 definition drilling program will be drafted from this information. An application for permitting with the United States Forest Service (Administrators of the Claims area) will be drafted and submitted from this data as well.


The Company seeks to become the first commercially viable domestic producer of Tungsten (W) in almost 50 years. Tungsten (W), is a Strategic Mineral/Metal, designated by the international community as a 'Conflict' Mineral. This designation would substantially value any traceable domestic production. The Company is concentrating in an area of S.W. Montana which has historically been a significant Tungsten producing district. USTU has staked claims to previously producing deposits as well as promising areas surrounding and along the 'trend' of these historical deposits.
