Production rates are increasing and will be further boosted by the move to continuous operations, the AIM-listed firm added.

The new loan, which comes via its existing loan facility from BlackRock and with no warrants attached, brings the total outstanding facility to US$49.1mln with the roll-up of interest.

“It is important for W Resources to have demonstrable funding to provide the resources for expansion,” said chairman Michael Masterman.

“This upsizing of the BlackRock facility achieves this objective with no dilution to shareholders, enabling the team to push ahead with the production ramp-up at La Parrilla and development work at Régua as we work towards bringing our second mine on stream next year.”
