W Resources (WRES) is currently focused on near-term production from its wholly-owned La Parrilla tungsten and tin mine located in southwest Spain.
The Company is in the final construction stage of the new large-scale concentrator plant and has already commissioned the new crusher and jig plants. The newly commissioned crusher and jig plants are now operating at near design capacity. As such, we expect the Company will be able to ramp-up production during Q3 2019.

We value the La Parrilla project on a DCF basis given its near-term production and provide a relative valuation based on our selected tungsten explorers for the Régua project. Assuming a discount rate of 10%, a flat long-term tungsten price of US$300/mtu and inputs from the FID, we calculate an NPV of £85.1m or 1.41p per share. To this we then add an implied EV of £3.9m or 0.07p per share, based on our average EV/resource multiple of US$3.2/mtu to the Régua project. Taken together, we calculate an indicative enterprise value of £89.0 which translates into an equity value of £64.8m or 1.07p per share, representing a 155% upside to WRES’ current share price.

Mechanical Completion of the La Parrilla Crusher Plant
W Resources Plc (AIM:WRES), the tungsten, copper and gold mining company with assets inSpainandPortugal, is delighted to announce the mechanical completion of the La Parrilla crusher plant.
Mechanical completion of the crusher plant paves the way for commissioning of mined ore in January 2019.
The crushing circuit has been carefully engineered to minimise creation of tungsten fines and is designed to process 350 tonnes per hour ("tph") of ore. It comprises of a jaw crusher and secondary cone crusher both with vibrating grizzlies prior to size reduction and two tertiary cone crushers in closed circuit with a double deck banana screen. All of which are supplied by a top tier crushing equipment provider, Metso Minerals Portugal, Lda. The circuit has been designed for modular expansion to 700tph requiring no modifications to the installed infrastructure in the future and is currently configured to feed X-Ray ore sorting going forwards. The high level of automation in the design and robust wear liner packages will permit strong operational control and minimise maintenance requirements going forwards.
Michael Masterman, Chairman of W Resources, commented:"The crusher is the first of the three La Parrilla plants to be completed and it's a great credit to the team to complete it ahead of schedule and on budget. We are looking forward to first mined ore into the crusher early in the new year which will contribute to an increase in production rates from La Parrilla in line with the planned ramp-up programme".

W Resources on track for lowest cost quartile tungsten production at La Parrilla
Spain-focused tungsten miner W Resources is targeting an average cash operating cost of $90 per mtu of tungsten concentrate at its La Parrilla mine for the first six years of its operation.
The operating cost will put La Parrilla in the lowest cost quartile of the global tungsten cost curve, according to W Resources’ latest reserve estimates. Ammonium paratungstate (APT) prices, used as a reference across the tungsten supply chain, have risen 16% since the beginning of the year. APT is trading in a range of $220-226 per mtu, cif Rotterdam, according to Metal Bulletin’s assessment. The demand picture for tungsten concentrates has proved particularly strong this year, resulting in narrowing discounts...
