Description

King Island Scheelite Ltd is focused on the exploration, development and production of tungsten deposits.  Currently its aim is to redevelop the tungsten mine on King Island, Tasmania.  In june 2014 a Mining Lease was granted by the Minister of Resources, of Tasmania.  This will now allow the dewatering of the old workings to commence.  

After a long history of mining Tungsten on the island, the operations closed in 1990 due to depressed prices.  The company is now redeveloping this Dolphin Project in stages commencing with an opencut mine followed by an underground operation.
