Almonty Industries Inc. (“Almonty” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:AII) today announced the filing of National Instrument 43-101 Technical Reports for each of: the Los Santos Mine, a tungsten mine located in Western Spain; the Wolfram Camp Mine, a tungsten mine located in Queensland, Australia; and the Valtreixal Project, a tin tungsten development project located in North Western Spain.
“We believe the updated NI 43-101 Technical Reports demonstrate the consistent expansion of Almonty’s tungsten reserves and resources over the previously filed reports, once again demonstrating the Company’s ability to increase the life-of-mine at each of its projects and enhance our understanding of the ultimate potential of each project – longevity in the mine life, increased reserve base and increased contained tungsten at each project through additional exploration activity. Combined with the inferred resources at our recently acquired Sangdong Mine in South Korea, we believe Almonty has a resource profile that rivals any tungsten mining company in the world,” stated Lewis Black, Chief Executive Officer of Almonty. Mr. Black continued, “We are also in the process of updating the Feasibility study for the Sangdong project and including additional drill data that was excluded from the June 1, 2015 study. We anticipate being in a position to publish this update within the next 45 days and anticipate that it will show material improvement over the June 1, 2015 report.”
The three Technical Reports being filed today were prepared by Adam Wheeler, an independent mining consultant. Mr. Wheeler is an independent Qualified Person for the purposes of National Instrument 43-101 and has prepared and/or approved the scientific and technical disclosure contained in this news release.
