READ: New Energy Minerals' scoping study reveals exceptional economics for Caula Vanadium Graphite Project

Last week, New Energy released a scoping study demonstrating the viability of an open pit vanadium and graphite mining operation at its 80%-owned Caula project in Mozambique.

Results indicate the potential to generate substantial financial returns through a two-phase development schedule with life-of-mine based on the large JORC measured resource and a strip ratio of 1:1.

The company aims to implement phase I production in the second half of next year as well as the concurrent completion of definitive feasibility studies and development activities for phase II.

Minimum 26-year mine life

The operation's total life of mine is 26 years based on the current JORC resource which is expected to increase after the completion of a recent 4,000-metre drilling program.

The scoping study outlines a phase I graphite concentrate production of 10,000-15,000 tonnes a year and 14,000-18,000 tonnes a year of 1.7% vanadium concentrate.

Phase II will see graphite production up to 120,000 tonnes per year at 97.5% total graphitic carbon (TGC) and 204,200 tonnes per year of 1.7% vanadium concentrate.
