Project History

The Los Santos Mine was acquired by Almonty in September 2011. Located approximately 50 km from Salamanca in western Spain, the Los Santos Mine is an open pit Scheelite skarn deposit that is currently producing tungsten concentrate. Almonty has been focused on utilizing its expertise in order to optimize operations, reduce costs and improve the tungsten recovery rate. To date Almonty has achieved an approximate 50% recovery rate of WO3 from its tailings retreatment as a result of continuing tests and trials, a substantial improvement from the 35-40% recovery rate attained in the initial stage of tailings retreatment.

The Company continues to improve and increase its knowledge in the area of tailings reprocessing which further demonstrates Almonty’s commitment to invest in tungsten technologies which is paramount to remaining competitive.
