Vanadium Pilot Scale Study Update

Testwork demonstrates increased vanadium extraction.

Key Points:

  • Excellent concentrate quality of 1.44% V2O5 generated from initial pilot scale testing of a weathered composite blended feed, reflecting the planned first 5 years of mine process feed.
  • New roast/leach benchscale tests averaging 95% vanadium extraction for pelletised concentrate, a significant improvement from PFS estimates.
  • 550kg of magnetic concentrate generated from pilot test is currently undergoing roast leach optimisation testwork.
  • Pilot scale oxidative roast leach testwork will begin in September.
  • Project environmental approval work, resource updates and economic mining studies all advancing steadily.
