- GILLES DUPUIS, P.ENG., A NEW DIRECTOR
In establishing a renewed focus on business fundamentals, we are pleased that Gilles Dupuis, P. Eng. has accepted the appointment as a Director of the Company. Mr. Dupuis is a well-respected engineering professional with 49 years of experience in the design, finance, construction, and operation of major engineering projects in Quebec and worldwide. He held senior leadership positions in the engineering firm BPR Inc. and, upon a merger, with Tetra Tech Inc.
Mr. Dupuis focuses on the valorization of residues, alternate energy production, energy & process heat audits, and process technologies for battery metals, such as lithium. He brings his years of productive experience in industry joint ventures and government collaboration to the Company.
The Board of Directors has accepted the resignation of Adriaan Bakker as a Director of the Company. We sincerely wish Mr. Bakker success in his new ventures.
2022-2023 WORK PROGRAM
Upon completion of the financing, the Company plans a renewed focus on mineral exploration and metallurgical process improvements for 2022 and 2023. VanadiumCorp owns 100% of a newly patented hydrometallurgical process, VEPT (the “VanadiumCorp, Electrochem, Process Technology”), invented by Dr. Francois Cardarelli that consists of digesting vanadiferous feedstocks into concentrated sulfuric acid. The key to the adequate supply of vanadium and titanium critical metals will be adopting alternate extractive technologies such as this new hydrometallurgical process. The Company plans to execute a multifaceted testing program on its Lac Dore and Iron T deposits. Bulk sampling and additional hydrometallurgical tests commence in September 2022. The program aims to improve the yields and quality of the outputs from its VEPT process and to investigate cost-saving measures, such as the recycling of process acids. Gilles Dupuis, P. Eng. and Gilles Champagne, PhD., our CTO, will collaborate in several Quebec-based programs to improve our metallurgical extraction technologies and to pilot the manufacture of high-purity vanadium electrolytes from our concentrates.
VanadiumCorp Resource Inc. is a mineral exploration company located in Vancouver, Canada, with 100% ownership of two strategic vanadium, titanium, and iron properties in Quebec. The Iron T is near Matagami, and the Company’s flagship Lac Dore property is near Chibougamau. A current technical report (Longridge, 2020) on the Lac Dore deposit describes Measured and Indicated Mineral Resources of 215 million tonnes containing 53 million tonnes of recoverable titanomagnetite. The titanomagnetite concentrate is estimated to have 1.49 billion pounds of V2O5 (not factored for recoveries from titanomagnetite).
VanadiumCorp also owns 100% of the newly patented hydrometallurgical process, VEPT (the “VanadiumCorp, Electrochem, Process Technology”), invented by Dr. Francois Cardarelli, that consists of digesting vanadiferous feedstocks into concentrated sulfuric acid. The technology addresses the recovery of vanadium, titanium, ferrous sulphate, and silica products from mineral concentrate feedstocks, such as titanomagnetite. The VEPT process is also valid for recovering vanadium from industrial residues, such as fly-ash from powerplants and slags from oxygen blast furnaces (BOF-slags). Dr. Cardarelli’s sulphuric acid process is novel because it adapts a proven and widely used sulphuric acid process to the extraction of valuable metals from titanomagnetite and industrial residues.
Mr. Paul McGuigan, P. Geo., is a “Qualified Person” (as defined in NI 43-101 -Standards for Disclosure for Mineral Projects) and a director of the Company, has reviewed and approved the technical disclosures in this news release.
ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD OF VANADIUMCORP.
