U3O8 Corp. and its associate, Sulphide Resource Processing, have filed an international patent application for a two-step metallurgical process using an initial ferric iron leach followed by an acid wash that was developed for the extraction of uranium, phosphate, vanadium, rare earths and other metals at U3O8’s Berlin project in Colombia.
The method is simple and efficient according to U3O8 president and CEO Dr. Richard Spencer. “Of added note, U3O8 Corp’s patent could dovetail Read more
Some commodities can make for a greener global future. For example, uranium is a low-cost, large-scale source of clean energy in the world. The vanadium redox battery can offer virtually unlimited storage capacity for the world’s new wind and solar farms. And phosphates are one of the primary nutrients for crop production globally. Uranium. Vanadium. Phosphate: Essential for the world’s growing need for clean energy and food production. And U3O8 Corp. has it covered. Read more
Energy. It is one of the defining issues of our time.
The vanadium redox battery—with its ultra long life and vast capacity to hold power—is the key to our future energy storage requirements primarily in the solar and wind turbine sectors. Read more

Denison Mines Thursday downgraded projected vanadium production from 1.7 million pounds to 1.3 million pounds for this year.
The Toronto-based uranium miner also downgraded projected uranium and vanadium sales for this year.
Argex Mining (TSXV: RGX) is arguably the only serious junior player in the titanium sector in North America. The company’s La Blache project in mine-friendly Quebec has huge historic resources potentially worth billions and uses a proprietary method of extracting not just the TiO2, but also vanadium and iron. The company is expected to produce about 600,000 tonnes of TiO2 per year at full production, which will be close to 20% of the world’s production. Read more
