W was granted the Monforte-Tinoca Portuguese exploration licence, containing the Tinoca and Azeiteiros copper mines by the Portuguese Direction General for Energy & Geology (DGEG) under the Ministry of Economy & the Secretary of State for Energy in July 2016.

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.

Monforte-Tinoca was a successful small copper mine operation and this area and its surrounding structures provides a significant and potentially high-grade copper prospect to W’s Tungsten, Tin, Copper and Gold portfolio.

Initial review of copper, tungsten and tin targets will be carried out and drilling activities are planned for late 2017.
