The company is undertaking a definitive feasibility study (DFS) for the Gabanintha Vanadium Project which is expected to be completed in mid-2019.
This outlines a large, long-life and low-cost development opportunity, further enhanced by a recent 39% increase to the Northern Block measured and indicated mineral resource estimate.
Gabanintha’s high-grade resource estimate is 71.2 million tonnes at 1.1% vanadium oxide, within a total global resource of 131 million tonnes at 0.9%.
Overseeing the DFS is recent project director appointee David English and managing the study is Wave International, supported by a range of industry-leading consultants.
