The Australian Vanadium Project

The Australian Vanadium Project is one of the largest and highest-grade vanadium deposits being developed globally and the Company aims to be the largest Australian vanadium developer, with a world-class, long life asset of scale, located in the Tier-1 mining jurisdiction of Western Australia. In early 2024, a merger was completed with Technology Metals Australia Limited which consolidated the 18km orebody to enable a single integrated project with enhanced operational efficiencies. In May 2024, an updated Mineral Resource Estimate (MRE) was released, determining the combined global vanadium MRE as 395.4Mt at 0.77% V₂O₅, of which the high-grade domain is 173.2Mt at 1.09% V₂O₅, including 105.4Mt at 1.12% V₂O₅ classified as Measured or Indicated.

Located in the Murchison Province approximately 43km south of the mining town of Meekatharra in Western Australia, the Australian Vanadium Project is serviced by quality roads and infrastructure and enjoys easy access to the regional airport and proximity to the Port of Geraldton.

The Company is currently undertaking an Optimised Feasibility Study (OFS) focused on realising the potential economic benefits of the integrated project, which will be informed by preceding trade-off studies to determine the preferred project development pathway, mine scheduling and processing plant location. The aim of the OFS is to improve on previous economic and technical metrics.
