September 19th, 2022

  • Silver
  • Vanadium
  • Energy

ASX listed Manuka Resources combines the stability of a producer and the opportunity of a growth company. Its two projects producing gold and silver generate cash flows on the one hand yet have enormous potential for further development on the other - no wonder the gold resource in particular continues to grow despite increasing production volumes. Recently, the well-connected management team achieved another coup acquiring a very large iron sands and vanadium project in New Zealand. The South Taranaki Bight project (STB project) hosts a VTM iron sands deposit (vanadium, titanomagnetite iron sands) with outstanding PFS economics, unique environmental credentials and is scheduled to be in production within a few years. Even today, vanadium is to infrastructure projects and utility energy storage, what lithium is to electromobility, ie: absolutely critical. We talked to Dennis Karp, Executive Chairman of Manuka Resources, about the prospects and facts surrounding Manuka’s project portfolio.

Batteries for electric cars, fuel cells, wind turbines, solar panels, LCD screens and fertilizers: Boron is versatile and hardly replaceable.
