AVL is actively negotiating potential offtake agreements for the calcine product and vanadium produced from the Australian Vanadium Project in WA.
By-product sales could have a positive impact on overall operating costs and, therefore, enhance the company’s goal to be one of the lowest-cost producers of vanadium in the world.
AVL’s recent tests have demonstrated the potential to generate an iron and titanium-rich calcine by-product from the Australian Vanadium Project’s proposed roast-leach process.
Potential sales of the calcine by-product could add significant additional revenue over the life of the project.
Bench-scale test work on iron and titanium-rich calcine has upgraded the calcine iron content to an average of 66% iron from 54%.
Calcine grading in excess of 62% iron could be sold into the global iron ore market.
