It also highlighted that tungsten prices have improved, up 5.9% during the quarter, and the group’s interim management team are now based in the UK, close to the mine.

"The next six months is a pivotal time for Wolf to realise its' objective of becoming a reliable steady-state producer,” Lucas said.

“So as to provide the required level of onsite commitment to lead the company towards long term success, my family and I are relocating to Plymouth in the UK.

“In addition as part of the increased executive presence at site I am also very pleased to welcome Stephen Hill as interim chief financial officer. Stephen, who will work with me at site, is an experienced finance executive and has extensive turnaround experience.”

He added: “The June quarter has been an active one. To address our operational challenges we engaged leading specialists who are experts in their fields to assist us to identify and reach consensus on technical solutions.

“This has formed the basis of an operating turnaround plan which aims to achieve a sustainable production platform during the December quarter, from which further volume and optimisation improvements can be made.”
