West Australian vanadium explorer Technology Metals Australia (TMT) will embark on a three year research program into electrolytes with the Future Battery Industries Cooperative Research Centre.
Alongside being the largest shareholder in the program, TMT will be supplying product from its Murchison Technology Metals Project as feedstock for the vanadium redox flow battery focussed research. Those feedstocks, the company says, includes magnetite concentrate and vanadium pentoxide.
Ferro-Alloy Resources Limited (LON:FAR) is developing the giant Balasausqandiq vanadium deposit in Kyzylordinskaya oblast of southern Kazakhstan. The ore at this deposit is unlike that of nearly all other primary vanadium deposits and is capable of being treated by a much lower cost process.
