Vancouver, British Columbia and Val-des-Sources, Québec – March 29, 2023 – VanadiumCorp Resource Inc. (TSX-V: VRB) (OTCBB: APAFF) (FSE: NWN) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce the attainment of significant milestones in the establishment of the Company’s test facility for manufacturing vanadium electrolytes. Site selection is complete, and equipment procurement has begun. The Company has secured the primary electrolyte manufacturing equipment from leading international process equipment suppliers.

The electrolyte facility will be located at the Carrefour d’Innovation sur les matériaux de la MRC des Sources (CIMMS), in Val-des-Sources, Québec.  CIMMS provides technical support services to innovative mining, metals and eco-materials companies active in Québec. The Company and CIMMS have signed a cooperation agreement to produce over 2 million litres/year of high-quality vanadium electrolyte for use in Vanadium Redox Flow Batteries (VRFB). The Company expects production to begin in Q4 2023. The initial test facility is sufficient to provision 6.2 MWh of VRFB storage per year.

Contingent on sales, potential production at the CIMMS site can expand incrementally according to market needs using our modular production-line design, each module with a capacity of 4 million litres/year, each providing about 80 MWh of VRFB storage per year.

VanadiumCorp’s CEO Paul McGuigan, P. Geo. stated, “We are delighted that our electrolyte facility is now taking shape. VanadiumCorp will be able to plan production for the expanding global market for this key ingredient in long-duration vanadium redox flow batteries. We look forward to a very positive partnership with CIMMS.”

Chairman of CIMMS François Gouin said “It is with enthusiasm that CIMMS begins collaboration with VanadiumCorp within the framework of the new agreement signed recently.”
