- W Resources said it had fed the first ore at the newly commissioned jig and mill plant at the La Parrilla tungsten mine in Spain.

The milestone followed construction completion in April and commissioning of the conveyors, pumps, thickener, two mills and two jigs over the past month.

The jigged mine feed would now be fed through the existing concentrator plant.

A new large-scale concentrator plant, meanwhile, was advancing to construction completion in June and commissioning in July.

'We have successfully commissioned the La Parrilla crusher plant and are successfully commissioning the jig and mill plant,' chief executive Michael Masterman said.

'The next step is construction completion of the new concentrator plant in June and commencement of commissioning in July.'

'Great progress has been made by the team which keeps us on-track to ramp-up to design production capacity of 200 tonnes per month by the end of 2019.'
