Apollo Minerals Limited (ASX:AON) has confirmed “excellent” infrastructure and ground conditions at the Salau tungsten mine in France.

The Salau mine, which is included within Apollo’s Couflens tungsten project, has completed the initial phase of a health and safety risk assessment, which confirmed excellent ground conditions within competent granite host rock and limited deterioration of conditions evident since mine closure.

Hugo Schumann, executive director of Apollo, said: “The Salau tungsten mine is blessed with excellent infrastructure and ground conditions including wide development drives, good natural ventilation and ready access to water and power.

He added: “The previous mine owners developed the mine within a hard and competent granite host rock which remains in excellent condition today. These infrastructure advantages represent potential major time and cost savings and will greatly facilitate our planned work programs which include drilling to test multiple gold and tungsten targets.”
