The office will be open for business on January 3, 2023. 

About VanadiumCorp

VanadiumCorp Resource Inc. is a mineral exploration company based in Quebec and 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 Doré property is near Chibougamau.

An introduction to the Company by our Executive Chairman, Ian Mallory, can be viewed as a Greenshoe Media Group video at:

Definition diamond-drilling and resampling surface trenching on the Lac Doré property by the Company culminated in preparing a Technical Report and Mineral Resource Estimate by CSA Global Consultants Canada Limited (“CSA”), with Dr. Luke Longridge, P. Geo. as the lead consultant. CSA produced a Technical Report titled “Lac Doré Project, Chibougamau, Québec, Canada, December 10, 2020.” The full technical report is available on the Company’s website and SEDAR. Longridge recommended a program of step-out diamond drilling and metallurgical testing.

The Technical Report describes Measured and Indicated Mineral Resources of 215 million tonnes containing 53 million tonnes of recoverable vanadiferous 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 slags from oxygen blast furnaces (BOF-slags). This sulphuric acid process is novel because it adapts a proven and widely used industrial process to extract valuable metals from titanomagnetite and industrial residues.
