Invest in the world’s next
high-grade vanadium mine
AVL’s Gabanintha vanadium deposit is a globally significant project with high-grade Measured, Indicated and Inferred Resources
A pre-feasibility study, process design and extensive metallurgical test work has been completed, as Australian Vanadium Ltd prepares to move to the next phase and extract high-grade vanadium.About the Gabanintha Project >
Australian Vanadium Ltd's mission is to increase shareholder wealth through the development of economic mineral deposits.
What has captured many investors’ attention is vanadium’s potential in the renewable energy sector.
Being able to capture renewable energy to use when its convenient and being able to bring power to remote areas where the health and economic benefits of reduced diesel use is measurable, is a socially attractive use for vanadium.
In addition to the energy storage capabilities in vanadium redox flow batteries, developments using vanadium in lithium battery cathodes brings more potentially valuable uses.
AVL is committed to providing our shareholders with the best possible exposure to the benefits our high-grade deposit can produce from both the steel and battery markets.- Brenton Lewis, Chairman
Why invest in Vanadium?
In 2017, vanadium consumption exceeded production by more than 9,000 MTV.
Vanadium demand is strong and the demand is trending upwards.
This is partly due to improved structural steel regulations in China and the growing battery market. In addition, the global production of vanadium is decreasing due to emission control over mines in China, a ban on the import of vanadium slag to China and reduced supply from South Africa. AVL’s high-grade vanadium deposit can meet the needs of an eager market.
- 92% of vanadium consumption is for steel.
- The addition of as little as 0.1% vanadium increases steel strength by up to 100%, whilst reducing weight up to 30%.
- Demand for use in rebar (reinforcing steel used as rods in concrete) continues to increase at 6% annually.
- New Chinese government standards for rebar insist on increased vanadium for strength in construction, double that of the rest of the world.
- New markets are emerging and scaling up. These markets will increase vanadium demand further as it becomes more widely used in automotive, aviation, aerospace, power lines and pylons.
AVL’s team brings together experts in geoscience, mining, chemical engineering, marketing and corporate governance, with extensive vanadium experience. Our team is committed to seeing this high-grade vanadium resource through to production.Meet our team >
