Gabanintha Vanadium Project progress
The company recently signed a non-binding letter of intent (LOI) with Sinosteel Australia Pty Ltd for life of mine (LOM) offtake from its Yarrabubba Iron-Vanadium Project, a satellite project to the Gabanintha Vanadium Project (GVP) in Western Australia.
TMT has produced a premium product in test-work with up to 66.3% iron in magnetic concentrate produced from the fresh massive magnetite unit at Yarrabubba and a contained vanadium grade of up to 1.73% V2O5, which may assist in funding the GVP.
Notably, the company has also been granted Mining Leases M51/883 (Northern Block) and M51/884 (Southern Tenement) within the GVP which delivers all tenure required for the development of the project including miscellaneous licences for the bore field and camp and general-purpose leases for mining infrastructure associated with the Northern Block.
