Woulfe Mining Corp. (TSX-V:WOF) is going ahead with an aggressive plan to re-open a dormant tungsten mine in South Korea by 2012. The Sandong tungsten-molybdenum mine is one of the largest tungsten mines in the world, having operated for over 40 years. Woulfe Mining recently completed its drilling program and is looking to publish a feasibility study by the end of the year. A scoping study done in 2010 by Wardrop Engineering showed an projected resource of 103.6 millon tonnes. The mine would produce about 4,000 tonnes of tungsten worth a cool $180 million per year.
