Drakelands Mine

Sad news today Drakelands has ceased operations.

Hemerdon as it was before Wolf minerals started a new operation is a stock works containing wolfram and cassiterite.

As with any stock works values vary hugely over the area of the workings.

The wolfram from Hemerdon is iron rich Ferberite  which is the the iron endmember  of the manganese – iron wolframite solid solution series. It can be a headache to process with low recovery rates.

Lets hope funding can be found to keep the venture afloat.
