YUKON – NORTH AMERICAN TUNGSTEN of Vancouver is advancing work at its Mactung tungsten project near MacMillan Pass, on the border with the Northwest Territories. The company has asked WARDROP ENGINEERING to prepare a feasibility study over the next nine to 12 months.
The company considers Mactung one of the largest known undeveloped high-grade tungsten skarn deposits in the world. It has indicated resources of 30 million tonnes at 0.88% WO3 and an inferred resource of 10 million tonnes grading 0.78% WO3.
Two bulk samples were taken from the Mactung deposit in the early 1980s. Additional details are posted at www.NATungsten.com.
