- W Resources said it had reached mechanical completion of a crusher plant at the La Parrilla tungsten mine in Spain, paving the way for commissioning of mined ore in January 2019.

The crushing circuit had been designed to process 350 tonnes per hour of ore.

'The crusher is the first of the three La Parrilla plants to be completed and it's a great credit to the team to complete it ahead of schedule and on budget,' chief executive Michael Masterman said.

'We are looking forward to first mined ore into the crusher early in the new year, which will contribute to an increase in production rates from La Parrilla in line with the planned ramp-up programme.'
