The Granville Tin Project is located approximately 20km north of the historic mining town Zeehan on the west coast of Tasmania, and lies within the historic Heemskirk tin field. The Granville Tin Project comprises two mining leases (21M/2003 and 9M/2006) currently approved for Level 1 operations, an open cut pit (Granville East) and a processing plant. Aus Tin Mining commenced the production of tin concentrate in August 2016 and all concentrate is to be sold to Traxys.
The Company intend moving to a Level 2 operation as soon as possible. A development Application was lodged with the West Coast Council on December 22, 2016 and whilst the approvals process is subject to a statutory timetable, the Company is aiming to receive all necessary approvals during the March 2017 quarter.
