During mid-late December 2018, AVL released its maiden ore reserve and final pre-feasibility study (PFS) on its Gabanintha Vanadium Project in Western Australia.

The PFS estimated an ungeared post-tax net present value (NPV) ranging between US$125 million and US$1.41 billion, depending on the vanadium pricing assumption used.

Positive outcomes and strong vanadium market fundamentals support immediate progression to a definitive feasibility study (DFS).

Further drilling for pilot study is scheduled to commence January 2019.
