SALORO BREAKS GROUND AT BARRUECOPARDO

On site works have now accelerated at the Barruecopardo Tungsten project in Salamanca, a low cost, simple mining and simple metallurgy tungsten project in Western Spain.

Fairport Engineering, Saloro’s Engineer, has been prominent in supporting activities having previously undertaken the Basic Engineering studies for the project and is now advancing the ordering and manufacturing of proprietary equipment as well as defining the civil works associated with the processing plant and infrastructure. The civil works commenced in October 2017.

The project, after commissioning towards the end of next year, will produce ~260,000 metric tome units of WO3, representing some 12% of current non-Chinese world tungsten concentrate supply.

Notwithstanding these on-site activities, Fairport continues to develop other aspects of the project including the mechanical and structural packages together with the electrical and control system areas.
