We built U.S. Tungsten Corp. upon one mandate: The best way to solve the looming crisis in domestic tungsten supplies is to find tungsten right here at home. That's why we've assembled a team of tungsten experts who know what to look for-particularly in the western U.S. where tungsten was mined in the past with many discoveries that remain undeveloped. The country's last tungsten mine closed in 2000. No domestic tungsten mining has occurred since. Historic tungsten mines and tungsten occurrences are found in the West, particularly in Montana, California, Nevada, Colorado and Arizona.
Beginning early in 2012, we launched our tungsten search in Montana. Our first acquisition was a property in the western part of the state historical mining produced high grade tungsten in 1956 and 1957. Following our initial prospecting and assessment, we plan to conduct initial exploration in 2012 and 2013.
Our goal is to expand our holdings through aggressive prospecting and staking across the western U.S.
