Blackheath Resources (TSXV:BHR) CEO James Robertson seeks to reaffirm Portugal’s historical position as top tungsten producer in Europe.
Blackheath Resources (TSXV:BHR) CEO James Robertson spoke to Resource Investing News at the Canadian Investor Conference in Vancouver about the Company’s sole focus on tungsten in Portugal, with the Covas and Borralha projects. In addition to these two mines, Blackheath has also acquired other past-producing mines in Portugal. Mr. Robertson says, “Portugal used to produce most of Europe’s tungsten historically, and we’re looking to see if we can reaffirm that position in Europe again with our current projects.”
