URANIUM-aspirant Toro Energy has found vanadium could be a viable by-product of uranium processing at its Wiluna uranium project in Western Australia after leach optimisation and ion exchange tests successfully recovered both uranium and vanadium from its Lake Maitland ore.

Toro kicked off research and test-work on leach optimisation and ion exchange to look at ways to cleanly separate and recover both metals earlier in the year in the hope of cashing in on the growing.
