High tungsten prices spark interest in site

Abstract:
High tungsten prices and a growing demand for the metal are leading a company to consider opening a second mine in the North.

North American Tungsten Corp. has announced that they are conducting a full feasibility study of their Mactung property. The site is located near the border between the Yukon and the Northwest Territories.

New nanotechnology has developed that can make the brittle metal more malleable so it can be used in some cases to replace lead, Leahy said. Tungsten is also non-toxic.
