- W Resources, the tungsten, copper and gold, exploration and development company with assets in Spain and Portugal, has completed a reverse circulation (RC) drilling campaign at its Tarouca tungsten and tin exploration licence in Portugal.

The month long RC drilling programme included 29 holes with 1,515 metres of total drilling, completed in lengths between 50 metres and 70 metres.

Intersections are expected from surface to a maximum of a 50 metre depth, based on the very distinctive mineralisation at surface.

The full assay results are expected to be received in Q3 2018, following which the development team will model the mineralised lenses in order to advance a geological resource at Tarouca.

Michael Masterman, chairman of W Resources, said: "The RC drilling programme was completed in order to confirm the target exploration area, as well as provide a more in-depth understanding on several high-grade skarn lenses with a complex geological history (discontinuous mineralised bodies).

"Tarouca is located just 20km from Régua and we believe it has the potential to enhance and expand the Régua development."
