More power to Tungsten Mine King Island Tasmania

The King Island scheelite mine will again host one of the highest grade tungsten deposits (used to strengthen steel), which was dormant for over three decades.  

The Group 6 Metals Company is now fully financial for the redevelopment of the Dolphin Tungsten project at Grassy, King Island. A $49 million contract is in place to begin the project from the design through to everything being in place on the island, to start operations.

Hydro Tasmania King Island will install the infrastructure from the two million dollars funded by the Tasmanian Government to supply the power source for the mine, located South East of King Island, Tasmania.
