Blackheath Resources Inc. (TSXV:BHR,FWB:04B) announced it has signed a letter of agreement for an option to acquire the past-producing Bejanca tungsten/tin project.
As quoted in the press release:
The concession encompasses several historic mines that produced tin and tungsten concentrates until their closure in 1985. No exploration work or drilling has been undertaken since that time and Blackheath will re-assess Bejanca for its mineral potential.
The mines at Bejanca operated from the early 1900s until 1985 when tungsten prices resulted in their closure. Available historic records show production of tungsten concentrates between 1911 and 1939 as well as production of both wolframite (tungsten) concentrates and cassiterite (tin) concentrates between 1963 and 1985. Mining was from several shallow open pits and shallow underground workings. The tungsten and tin mineralisation occurs in stockworks in greisens and also in hydrothermal quartz veins.
