Project Background

Located close to W’s CAA / Portalegre copper-gold project, the Monforte-Tinoca exploration licence covers 496.19km² and is highly prospective for copper, gold, tin and tungsten exploration and development.

The Monforte-Tinoca Copper exploration licence, which contains the Tinoca and Azeiteiros former copper mines, was granted to W in July 2016 and this project will be advanced during 2018.

Development & Key Milestones

Geophysics surveys have been completed using both Induced Polarisation / Electric Resistivity and Transient Electromagnetics methods across the
target Copper zones.

The geophysics surveys are expected to pin point the copper anomaly and extensions of the former high-grade copper mines. RC drilling (1,500m in total) was completed mid-year.

Initial review of copper, tungsten and tin targets will be carried out and drilling activities are planned for late 2018.

Location

Municipalities of Monforte, Arronches, Elvas and Campo Maior in the Northern Alentejo region of East Portugal approximately 230km East of Lisbon
