ABOUT US TUNGSTEN CORP:
US Tungsten Corp. was built upon one mandate: The best way to solve the looming crisis in domestic tungsten supplies is to find tungsten right here at home.
As a result, US Tungsten has assembled a team of tungsten experts who are skilled and experienced in the exploration of this strategic metal. The company's initial focus is in the western US where tungsten was mined in the past, and is also home to many discoveries that remain undeveloped. The last tungsten mine in the US closed in 2000 and no domestic tungsten mining has occurred since. Historic tungsten mines and occurrences are found in the West, particularly in Montana, California, Nevada, Colorado and Arizona.
Beginning early in 2012, the company launched their specialty metals search in Montana. US Tungsten's first acquisition was a property in the western portion of the state where historical mining has produced high grade tungsten through 1956 - 1957. Following our initial prospecting and assessment, we plan to conduct initial exploration in 2012 and 2013.
US Tungsten's goal is to expand our holdings through aggressive prospecting and staking across the western US, building a domestic, secure project portfolio of tungsten and other specialty metals projects.
