W Resources expands production by around 75% at the La Parrilla project with Metso's technology

W Resources has selected Metso to build a high-capacity crushing plant for their La Parrilla Project in the south of Spain. With the plant, W Resources aims to increase their capacity while reducing the quantity of tungsten fines produced.

"The new Metso crushing circuit is a critical component of the La Parrilla site and part of the increase to 2 million tons per annum of run-of-mine. This will enable production of 2,500-2,700 tons per annum of tungsten concentrate. We believe Metso will bring the needed results in terms of design, quality, price and delivery time" says W Resources Plc.

"The bidding process was extremely competitive and we are proud to have been honored with the order. With the new crushing circuit design, W Resources will be able to minimize their production of tungsten fines, which are harder to recover than more coarse material," says Miguel Santos at Metso Portugal Lda.

The value of the order is EUR 1.2 million and it has been booked in Metso's Q3 2017 orders.

Ensuring low operational disruption

Shutdowns are one of the biggest operation-related causes for lost revenue in the mining industry. To minimize all unplanned downtime during erection, Metso's team of engineers will work closely with the customer on the final layout to ensure the best availability during the whole operation. The new plant will be delivered during Q2 2018.

Scope of delivery

The order comprises a C130 jaw crusher, a VF500 vibrating feeder, an MB352 rock breaker, three HP300 cone crushers and an MF2473 screen to be delivered during Q2 2018. The full engineering proposal still needs to be submitted to W Resources Plc.
