King River Copper Ltd (ASX:KRC) is continuing to unlock the vanadium potential at Speewah.
Many investors new to the King River story may not know that the Speewah vanadium resource is the largest in Australia at 4.7 billion tonnes at 0.3% vanadium.
The company is undertaking a Vanadium Concept Study into the production of high purity vanadium pentoxide and titanium dioxide from the Central vanadium deposit at Speewah.
The major objective of the Concept Study will be to identify a base framework for a new Scoping Study into the production and marketability of vanadium electrolyte products used in vanadium redox flow batteries.
King River added that further optimisation tests are required to increase metal recoveries, shorten leach times and reduce acid consumption.
The company aims to initially trial selective precipitation, solvent extraction and thermal hydrolysis methods to precipitate vanadium pentoxide and titanium dioxide.
Results are expected before the end of the September quarter 2017.
