Following an optimization of the mine plan for theLa Parrillaopen pit tungsten mine in Spain, WResources Plc has decided to start mining at a higher rate of 1.95million tonnes per annum, compared to 875,000 tonnes per annum the previousplan.

Instead of the 1,300 tonnes per annum of concentratepreviously estimated,the company said July 20 that it will now initially produce 2,500 tonnes perannum.

Initial mining, plant commissioning, tungsten concentrateproduction, and sales to customers will start in the fourth quarter usingexisting on-site plant and facilities.

The mine will ramp up to a 90% higher production rate frommid-2017, when construction of the processing plant is completed. The plantwill be twice as large compared to the previous plan, the company said.
