- W Resources said earthworks had commenced at its flagship La Parrilla mine in Spain, while mobilisation of a construction team to site had started following the receipt of BlackRock Financial Management financing in February.

Site preparation works were underway with earthworks pads for the offices and key construction infrastructure nearing completion, the company said.

'Overall W has moved quickly into a position where by the end of March 2018 approximately 60% of the total project commitments have been placed in firm contracts or purchase orders, providing good momentum in just over a month from financing completion,' chairman Michael Masterman said.
