What’s the plan ahead?

The capital raising program follows the pre-feasibility study results for the company’s Victory Bore Vanadium Project that demonstrated robust project economics. Read more about the results.

Furthermore, the company released a maiden probable ore reserve of 93 Mt @ 0.35% V2O5, 5.2% TiO2 and 19.8% Fe. The results have been reported in accordance with the JORC Code (2012). They give a significant basis as one of the largest Australian underdeveloped vanadium projects, says SRN.

With the completion of capital raise and encouraging PFS results, SRN would now advance a definitive feasibility study on the project. Moreover, the company would focus on establishing the downstream vanadium processing plant in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA).

SRN MD Paul Burton and Chairman Vladimir Nikolaenko will participate in the Future Minerals Forum (FMF), which will be held in Riyahd, KSA, in January 2024.

SRN shares traded at AU$0.010 on 14 December 2023.
