About VanadiumCorp Resource Inc.
VanadiumCorp is a mining company with a vision to become the lowest cost, primary producer of Vanadium in the world. The current growth strategy is focused on development of its most advanced project in mining friendly Quebec, Canada, the Lac Dore project. This project encompasses the main Lac Dore deposit and is directly adjacent to a projected $600 Million CAPEX mine. The Company’s unique projects are both located in mining friendly Quebec and hold the key for stable domestic supply of Vanadium for years to come. VanadiumCorp’s experienced management and technical teams are dedicated to project development and building shareholder value.
The main use of Vanadium today is in light weight high-strength alloy steels. Just ~0.1% of Vanadium can double the strength of steel. This has a very strong economic and environmental impact as it allows producers to build superior products with less steel. This saves significant material costs and reduces the amount of resources to mine. Vanadium has also been dubbed “the electric metal” for its bright future in energy storage and green technology. Highly concentrated and economical sources to mine are only found in China, South Africa and Russia. In 2007 & 2008, VanadiumCorp acquired the most prolific Vanadium deposits in North America.
The new VanadiumCorp website is set for launch in March 2014.
