The La Parrilla Concentrator Plant has commenced commissioning following the detailed installation of the Motor Control Centre (“MCC”) including all electrical connections and associated plant completion work. Commissioning of the spirals and shaking tables buildings ‘on water’ has commenced, which is an important phase prior to feeding ore through.

“The commencement of commissioning of the new Concentrator Plant is a long-awaited event and is a major step forward for W Resources. It is important to note that commissioning ensures a streamlined start-up of the ramp-up of tungsten and tin production. The Crusher and Jig & Mill Plants are operations ready and we have maintained the low-cost nature of this impressive world class project by ensuring each phase is delivered to the highest standards as we prepare for first concentrate production in September.”
