Tungsten West has decided to halt plans to sell off secondary aggregate from a tungsten mine in Hemerdon in Devon in UK which would have required more lorry journeys after fears were raised over the number of lorry journeys that would be needed. The company said it it had decided to focus all our efforts on restarting tungsten and tin mining.Tungsten West‘s Executive vice chair Mr Mark Thompson said: "We are not prepared to develop a secondary aggregates business at the expense of the relationships we are trying to build with the local and wider community. In the short-term, we will halt the sale of secondary aggregates. Once we are in production, we will look to work within the HGV movement limits of 50 per day specified in our existing planning permission as our starting position."Hemerdon Mine has the world's third largest tungsten resource, a critical material used in cars, electronics, medical equipment, manufacturing and defence.
