La Parrilla is one of the largest tungsten deposits in the western world and is scalable at low cost. The mineral resource estimated by Golder Associates in April 2017 at 0.04% WO3 cut-off grade is 49 million tonnes at 0.10% WO3 and 0.011% Sn.

With its core infrastructure in place, the site is accessed directly from the highway along a 3km asphalt road and is serviced by electricity and water. Importantly, the mine is located within a short trucking distance from both the Atlantic and Mediterranean ports.
