Daehwa Molybdenum-Tungsten Project

  • 100km SE of Seoul in the Chungcheongbuk-do Province.
  • Historic Daehwa and Donsan molybdenum & tungsten mines.
  • Historic production reported until 1979 was 2,022t of MoS2 in a 95% concentrate and 793t of WO3 in a 65-70% concentrate.
  • High grade, narrow vein mineralisation developed for over 1 kilometre of strike extent along the main footwall Mo lodes.
  • Historic hangingwall mining initially focussed on W production until 1938 when mining efforts were refocussed onto the development of the Mo lodes.
  • Over 20 lodes were explored historically with production efforts focussing mainly on the 3 main footwall Mo lodes and 6 hangingwall Mo and W lodes.
