The test work has shown high-grades and recoveries of vanadium concentrate can be produced from the tailings of the graphite flotation process through WHIMS.

Mustang Resources produces high-grade vanadium concentrate from Caula ore

Graphite drill core samples at Caula Vanadium-Graphite Project

Mustang Resources Ltd (ASX:MUS) has produced high-grade vanadium concentrate in initial bench-scale metallurgical test work on ore from its Caula Vanadium-Graphite Project in Mozambique.

The company used an integrated graphite and vanadium flowsheet and the test work utilised wet high-intensity magnetic separation (WHIMS) on composite samples.

This resulted in a cleaner concentrate grade of 1.66% vanadium pentoxide with 80.6% recovery.

Results were achieved from an overall feed grade of 0.401% vanadium before graphite extraction.

Based on its new focus on battery metals, Mustang recently received shareholder approval to change its name to New Energy Minerals Ltd.
