The historic high-grade Storey’s Creek tungsten mine is located 3km north of the similar-scale Aberfoyle tin mine and is part of the same mineralised system. Both deposits sit in sedimentary rocks directly above buried “cupolas” of Ben Lomond granite, which is the source of tin and tungsten mineralisation.
Storey’s Creek has a production history of more than 1.1 Mt at 1.09% WO3 and 0.18% Sn. These production grades compare favourably with global tungsten deposits.
There is strong potential to locate additional blind vein mineralisation in under-explored areas nearby.
