Vanadium supply has tightened, providing an environment for negotiations

Australian Vanadium Ltd’s (ASX:AVL) consultant Mastermines is undertaking a second trip to China on behalf of the company to follow up on previous discussions and to target new prospects.

Mastermines’ objective is to identify prospective partners that offer the greatest potential and develop those relationships right through to a successful vanadium mine at Gabanintha in Western Australia.

The consultant is also participating in China’s largest vanadium conference to be held in Wuhan between April 18-20, 2018.

“Within this environment, we intend to rapidly progress to our objective of being the world’s next high-grade vanadium mine.

Mastermines has arranged for about 120 participants at the Wuhan Vanadium Conference to receive a Chinese version of the AVL presentation.

The consultant will also be available to discuss the advancement of the Gabanintha project.

Aiming to identify prospective partners in China

Following on from its visit to China late last year, Mastermines has spent considerable time researching the market and major players. 

In recent months the supply of vanadium has tightened considerably providing an excellent environment for negotiations.

Mastermines’ research has uncovered a number of emerging vanadium enterprises in China to take advantage of the current market conditions.
