Technology Metals Australia (ASX:TMT) executive director Ian Prentice discusses with Proactive Investors, key developments in the vanadium market, and progress with the company's flagship Gabanintha Vanadium Project in Western Australia.
Prentice recently completed a China road trip where he met with "all the major players in the Chinese vanadium industry... We can see a fantastic opportunity in this marketplace. The vanadium market is screaming out for new supplies."
At Gabanintha, definitive feasibility study (DFS) planning is well underway, with a target start date of August 1st. The company last week announced the acquisition of a neighbouring tenement, which Prentice says, "it just gives us a bit more flexibility around our operations, a bit more optionality on where we can place our infrastructure. It's a really key location next door to the area where our main open pit's going to be. It adds a lot of value to the longer term life of the operation."
