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.
