Producing high-grade and low-cost tungsten in a supportive Tier-1 jurisdiction.View an overview of the project
Group 6 Metals (ASX: G6M) has successfully redeveloped the historic Dolphin Tungsten Mine, on King Island, Tasmania which had been closed since 1992. Production at the mine has commenced with a new processing plant to produce high-quality product.
Previously operated between 1917 and 1992, the mine was closed due to extremely low tungsten prices with approximately 50% of the known mineral resource yet to be mined.
Today, the Dolphin Tungsten Mine hosts the highest-grade tungsten deposit of significant size in the western world.Learn More
