Tarouca tungsten and tin exploration licence is a former scheelite mine covering 5.7km².

In 2015, trench sampling at the Tarouca project showed high-grade tungsten results with 15 out of 126 samples exceeding 0.5% WO3, including 0.8 m at 11.4% WO3 (TTR063). Together with the 15 holes drilled in 2014, this confirms an outstanding exploration target in the north eastern area of the licence.

W has consolidated the data and will review timing for further targeted drilling in late 2016.
