A Globally Significant Vanadium Resource in Québec, Canada

Our Lac Doré is one of the world’s premier undeveloped vanadium resources hosted in high-grade iron & titanium. Conveniently located and accessible just 27 kilometres from the mining city of Chibougamau in the geopolitically stable, safe, and mining friendly jurisdiction of Québec, Canada. Lac Doré represents strategic vanadium battery supply for North America and is one of the very few vanadium resources capable of meeting the requirements of quality for vanadium-based energy storage.

What Sets Us Apart

GRADE

One of the Highest

Significant amount of resource grading 1.4% Vanadium Pentoxide in magnetite concentrate.

SIZE

One of the Largest

2,970,000,000 lbs Vanadium Pentoxide
21.8 Million Tonnes Titanium Dioxide
82.7 Million Tonnes Iron

METALLURGY

Exceptional Quality

Low impurities such as silica and low oxidation enable higher yield magnetite concentrates

World Class “NI 43-101” VTM Resource

CSA Tech Report

The NI 43-101 Technical Report was made possible thanks to local communities and world-class vanadium and mining expertise. With the highest regard for quality, responsibility, safety and sustainability, VanadiumCorp completed a successful drill program, testing campaign, and mineral resource estimate that formed the basis for the Technical Report. The drill campaign was designed by mining industry consultants CSA Global of Vancouver and InnovExplo from Val-d’Or, Québec. The exploration program was being managed by InnovExplo, under the supervision of the Table jamésienne de Concertation Minière (TJCM) of Chibougamau, northern Québec, a non-profit regional development organization that provides on-demand contractor monitoring, quality control, and technical support services to mining companies active in Eeyou Istchee James-Bay territory. The Company was proud to select Miikan Drilling Ltd of Chibougamau, northern Québec, a joint venture between Chibougamau Diamond Drilling Ltd of Chibougamau, Eskan Company of Mistissini, and Nimsken Corp. of Ouje-Bougoumou, northern Québec. Drill core samples (half-core) were submitted to SGS Canada Inc.’s facilities in Val d’Or and Quebec City, Quebec for preparation. The entire sample was dried as required and crushed to 75% passing 2 mm. A 1000-1500 g subsample is then split out and pulverized to 85% passing 75 μm and ~150 g subsample taken for head assays. Samples were then shipped to SGS Canada Inc.’s facility at Lakefield, Ontario for Whole Rock Analysis (WRA) performed by X-Ray Fluorescence spectroscopy (XRF). The SGS facilities are ISO/IEC 17025 standard certified for the methods used, and all analytical methods include quality control materials at set frequencies with established data acceptance criteria. The suite of elements analyzed includes SiO2, Al2O3, Fe2O3, MgO, CaO, Na2O, K2O, TiO2, P2O5, MnO, Cr2O3, V2O5, and Loss on Ignition (LOI). Strict QA/QC protocols designed by InnovExplo and CSA Global was implemented to ensure the assay results are relevant, reliable and in accordance with industry standards, CIM Mineral Exploration Best Practice Guidelines (CIM Exploration Guidelines, 2018) and National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (NI 43-101) disclosure requirements.

A special thanks for the overwhelming support of the local city of Chibougamau, Chapais, and the Cree First Nation.
