Ormonde Mining plc (LON:ORM) is now in the commissioning stages at the Barruecopardo tungsten project in Spain, in which it holds a 30% interest.

Open pit mining of surface tungsten ore zones commenced in January, allowing the commissioning of the crush and screen plant. This produces the fine ore stockpile for feeding into the process plant.

The commissioning stages of the process plant have been advancing and the first ore has now been introduced to the process plant. This activity will continue during the following weeks, during which tungsten concentrates will be produced.

This will lead to a progressive transition from the commissioning phase into the gradual ramp-up of production at Barruecopardo.

"Activities at Barruecopardo have been advancing well, with mining of ore for the process plant commencing in early January, and plant dry and wet commissioning mostly complete, with ore now being introduced to the process plant,” said chairman and interim managing director Michael Donoghue.

"These are significant milestones for the project, and we look forward to seeing ore commissioning progress during the weeks ahead and the successful transition into the project's production phase."
