In April 2019 G6M announced it had entered into an Offtake Agreement for tungsten concentrate with Wolfram Bergbau und Hutten AG, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sandvik AB, an international engineering group working within the mining and rock excavation, metal cutting and materials technology sectors.
The Wolfram Agreement is for the delivery of 140,000 metric tonne units or 1,400 tonnes of WO3, over a four-year period. This equates to the export of approximately 2,200 tonnes of concentrate, produced by the redeveloped Dolphin Tungsten Mine over that period.
At full production, the redeveloped Dolphin Tungsten Mine is expected to produce approximately 2,000 tonnes of W per annum, contained in 3,200 tonnes of concentrate.
As such, the Wolfram Agreement represents approximately 20% of its annual production.
In September 2021, the Company secured an offtake with the Traxys Group.
