- W Resources said a mill at its La Parrilla tungsten and tin project in Spain was on track for mechanical completion later this month.

The majority of steel and equipment had now been installed with electrical and instrumentation installation underway.

Outside the main plant, two additional bins would be delivered and installed in April.

Commissioning was expected to commence in early April with first crusher ore feed into the plant in April.

The majority of the equipment for a new large-scale concentrator was now on site, and, after an initial delay in steel deliveries to prime contractor allmineral Aufbereitungstechnik, installation commenced this week.

With steel deliveries underway, W Resources said it expected to be able to accelerate construction of the concentrator over the next two months.

The fully automated 350 tonnes per hour crushing circuit was fully commissioned and operational.

Mine development was also advanced, the company said.

'The fast track mine area, including the high-grade outcrops, has been cleared for initial mine operations and the ramp from the mine to the ROM pad nearing completion,' it added.

'Current mining operations are with the tailings contractor, and a full four-year mining contract has been tendered and will be formally awarded this quarter.'
