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.
Non-executive director Christiaan Jordaan.
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.
Among the near-term plans to be outlined by Jordaan at the CEO Sessions are completion of a scoping study, vanadium test work, feasibility study drilling, permitting, trial mining and discussions with strategic project partners.
