This month’s luncheon series will be on September 17 and 18

Mustang Resources Ltd (ASX:MUS) is shifting its focus to the key battery metals of vanadium and graphite and this process involves a proposed name change to New Energy Minerals Ltd (ASX:NXE).

Geographical focus remains on Mozambique with the Caula Vanadium-Graphite Project, adjacent to the Montepuez Ruby Project which the company is divesting to Fura Gems Inc (CVE:FURA).

With this transaction allowing Mustang to devote attention to the world-class Caula project, non-executive director Christiaan Jordaan will outline fast-tracking plans at this month’s Proactive CEO Sessions.

The 80%-owned Caula project is directly along strike from and due north of the Balama Graphite Project of Syrah Resources Ltd (ASX:SYR).

Given the strong demand for vanadium and large-flake graphite, coupled with the exceptional results from Caula to date in 2018, Jordaan will explain why the company has taken the decision.


The new name proposed for approval by shareholders reflects the new focus on the development and mining of two geologically associated commodities from the same deposit.

Both metals are essential to the production of electric vehicles and the storage of renewable energy with graphite used in lithium-ion batteries and vanadium in vanadium redox-flow-batteries.

The commodities also have traditional applications in the steel industry, a mainstay of global economic development.

Vanadium is used as a steel-strengthening alloy while large-flake graphite has the capacity to expand when heated and, therefore, has a fast-growing application in flame-retardant building materials.

The company has developed a simple, fully integrated flowsheet to extract vanadium and graphite from the same processing plant, using for the most part simple flotation.
