Tungsten West Ltd is a mining development company focussed on the restarting of the world-class Hemerdon Tungsten-Tin mine located in South Devon, UK. The company is the 100% owner of the previously producing Hemerdon mine, which is currently the third-largest tungsten resource in the world.
With demand for strategic metals, including tungsten and tin increasing rapidly, due to their heavy use in new technology, Tungsten West is concentrated on meeting this demand by restarting production at Hemerdon at a low cost due to existing infrastructure.
Tungsten West acquired the mine out of a receivership process in 2019 after its most recent operator, Wolf Minerals, stopped production in 2018. While it was operator, Wolf invested over £170 million into the development of the site, including the development of significant infrastructure and processing facilities. Hemerdon was producing tungsten and tin materials, under Wolf, between 2015 and 2018, before the company entered administration and placed the mine into receivership due to a number of issues that have since been identified and rectified by Tungsten West.
