Date: May 22, 2018

Australian Vanadium Ltd (ASX:AVL) has added another saleable battery metal opportunity to its flagship Gabanintha Vanadium Project with cobalt, nickel and copper recovered in a sulphide concentrate.

Bench-scale tests on Gabanintha fresh high-grade massive magnetite have resulted in the recoveries from non-magnetic stream.

Sulphide concentrates produced from flotation contain 3.8 to 6.3% base metals, including 1.54 to 2.02% cobalt, 1.36 to 2.58% nickel and 0.82 to 1.70% copper.
