The company

Wolfram Bergbau und Hütten AG is a world-leading supplier of high quality powders based on the metal tungsten. Due to its properties tungsten is indispensable for modern high-tech industries.

Mining & Recycling

Scheelite is mined at the Mittersill site. At St. Martin i.S. recycling activities are being expanded extensively in order to preserve natural resources and to re-use the valuable raw material.

Our products

Our company offers tungsten carbide, tungsten metal and tungsten oxide in powder form. Starting from the standard varieties we develop tailor-made products and solutions for our customers.

Facts about tungsten

Due to its specific properties, tungsten is indispensable for modern high-tech industries. It has the highest melting point of all metals and is therefore ideally suited for high temperature applications in energy and lighting technology, as well as aerospace industry. Having very high density, comparable to that of gold, it is utilised as a gyrating mass, counterweight or vibration damper in aerospace, automotive, sport and telecommunications technology. Tungsten serves as a replacement for ‘in radiation’ protection in medical engineering. In the form of tungsten carbide, it is used in hard metals.

Our locations in Austria

The mine in Mittersill (state of Salzburg) is one of the most important tungsten mines world-wide. In our state-of-the-art underground mine we recover scheelite, which together with tungsten concentrates purchased from all over the world, used as a primary raw material in the metallurgical plant at St. Martin im Sulmtal (state of Styria). The recycling of secondary tungsten raw materials plays an ever increasing role in preserving natural resources and closing the material cycles.
