What is Vanadium? How is it sourced? What is Vandium used for? 

QEM (ASX:QEM) is focused on the exploration and development of the Julia Creek Vanadium and Oil Shale Project, a unique world class critical minerals resource, with the added potential to deliver and utilise innovative and sustainable energy solutions.

QEM plans to be a leading supplier of high-quality vanadium pentoxide to both the nascent energy storage sector and the Australian steel industry.

Vanadium is classed as a critical mineral – with priority for development and investment – by the Australian Government due to its use in vanadium redox flow batteries (VRFBs) that are expected to play a significant role in the transition to renewable energy.

Stockhead’s Ashtyn Hiron sits down with QEM’s managing director Gavin Loyden to get the facts on Vanadium, what it is, why it’s important and how QEM is best placed for these developments in Australia.
