RockTalk is a Stockhead video series featuring a roundtable of resources experts discussing a new macro topic each week.  

In this episode, host Peter Strachan discusses the new and emerging uses for the vanadium and its compounds.

Populating the expert panel for this discussion are Ian Prentice, managing director at Technology Metals Australia (ASX:TMT), Scott Drelincourt, managing director at Critical Minerals Group (ASX:CMG) and Alan Eggers, executive director at Manuka Resources (ASX:MKR).

Manuka Resources’ South Taranaki Bight (STB) project is an advanced iron sands project producing a low-cost 55–57% iron concentrate and an extremely valuable biproduct – vanadium

Product from the Murchison Technology Metals Project (MTMPT) will be utilised as feedstock for vanadium electrolyte research, as well as measuring the effect of impurities to ultimately determine the optimal concentrations for VRFB electrolyte.

Critical Minerals’ flagship Lindfield project covers 295km2 in a well-known vanadium province just 30km northeast of Julia Creek in northern Queensland.

The group discuss a range of topics including how the price of vanadium established, Vanadium’s role in development of flow batteries and more.
