Operations moved to a five-day working week earlier this month and the plan is to move to a seven-day working week by April. Meanwhile, during the fourth quarter, a total of 261 841 t of run-of-mine ore was fed to the La Parrilla plant, up 53% on a like-for-like basis and up 15% on a pro rata basis compared with the quarter before.

Total tungsten and tin concentrate production reached 133.4 t for the quarter, up 72% on a like-for-like basis and up 29% on a pro rata basis compared with the third quarter.
