W Resources Plc (LON: WRES), the tungsten, tin and gold mining company has announced that it has fed first upgraded jigged ore to the new Concentrator Plant at La Parrilla in Spain.
First ore was fed to the new La Parrilla Concentrator Plant on 17 October 2019 for tungsten production at this world-class, low-cost mining project. Over the last month, an extensive programme of automated systems installation and commissioning was completed on the Concentrator Plant. Commissioning is also complete on the spiral and shaking table plants and the concentrator thickener. Commissioning of the floatation, magnetic and electrostatic separators is underway and allmineral Aufbereitungstechnik GmbH & Co. KG has advised they expect this will be completed in the coming weeks.
Michael Masterman, Chairman of W Resources commented:
“Very significant progress has been made over the last month in commissioning the new La Parrilla Concentrator Plant, with commissioning of the final phase nearing completion. It is great to see the Concentrator Plant start-up on ore for production at our flagship project. Upstream the mine and plant are ready and a stockpile of upgraded jigged feed is in place.”
