Aura Energy Completes Metallurgical Leach Test Work At Haggan Vanadium Project

BEIJING (Asian Metal) 2 Dec 19 – On November 28, Australian-based Aura Energy Limited announced that it has completed a successful program of metallurgical leach test work examining vanadium recovery by acid pressure leaching for the Haggan Vanadium Project, Sweden.

The program was carried out on a total of three drill hole composite samples defined as representative of the mineralization within the Haggan Vanadium High Grade Resource.

The test work resulted in vanadium recoveries of up to 96.9% to leach solution, with average recovery of 96.5% V2O5. The results of these metallurgical tests exceeded the expectations for recovery of vanadium from the Haggan Resource and provide the company with great confidence that it has developed a robust flow sheet.

Aura Energy is currently incorporating these results into the Haggan Vanadium Scoping Study and expects to deliver the scoping study shortly allowing progress of the project to its next stages.
