The  600 metre public access road will remove a long-term constriction in the local traffic network, and will also benefit other local mining operations, the company says.
“I am pleased to report that, despite the ongoing challenging conditions in investment markets, Wolf has continued to make strong progress in its development plans for the Hemerdon tungsten and tin project,” said Wolf Minerals' MD, Humphrey Hale.

Wolf has also appointed Gillian Hall as the project’s process plant manager. Hall has developed a significant amount of experience across a variety of commodities globally, including tin, gold and industrial minerals, over the last 30 years. In particular, she has experience in gravity separation techniques, which will be key to the successful operation of the Hemerdon plant.

The tungsten and tine mine was originally discovered at Hemerdon in 1867 and mining was carried out between 1919 and 1920 and again from 1934 to 1944.

Wolf Minerals is currently raising money to reach the £110 million required to open the mine.
