La Parrilla is a large scale, low-cost, long life Tungsten and Tin Mine.
The project has an Australasian Joint Ore Reserves Committee (“JORC”) compliant resources total 49 million tonnes (“mt”) at a grade of 998 parts per million (“ppm”) tungsten trioxide (“WO3“) and JORC compliant reserves of 29.8mt at a diluted grade of 931ppm WO3.
With its core infrastructure in place, the site is accessed directly from the highway along a 3km asphalt road and is serviced by electricity and water. Importantly, the mine is located within a short trucking distance from both the Atlantic and Mediterranean ports.
Production at La Parrilla commenced with the new plant in November 2019, moving to 24-hour operation in late December 2019. Tungsten and tin production will build substantially throughout 2020 in the ramp-up phase, to mine 2 mtpa of Run of Mine and produce approximately 2,700 tonnes of tungsten concentrate and 500t of tin concentrate per annum.
