Notes to editors

Bushveld Minerals is an AIM listed mineral project development company with a portfolio of vanadium, tin and coal assets in Southern Africa, including interest in a vanadium-producing operation. 

The Company's flagship platform, the vanadium platform, includes the Mokopane Vanadium Project, the Brits Vanadium Project, and an interest in Bushveld Vametco Alloys primary vanadium mining and processing company. The coal platform comprises the wholly-owned Imaloto Coal Project, which is being developed as one of Madagascar's leading independent power producers. The Company's tin interest is held through its shareholding in AIM listed AfriTin Mining Limited.

Bushveld's vision is to become a significant, low-cost, integrated, primary vanadium producer through owned low-cost, high-grade assets. This incorporates development and promotion of the role of vanadium in the growing global energy storage market through Bushveld Energy, the Company's energy storage solutions provider. Whilst the demand for vanadium remains largely anchored in a slow growing steel industry, Bushveld Minerals believes there is strong potential for an imminent, significant, global vanadium demand surge from the fast-growing energy storage market, particularly through the use and adoption of Vanadium Redox Flow Batteries.

The Company's approach to project development recognises that whilst attractive project economics are imperative, they are insufficient to secure capital to bring them to account. A clear path to production with a visible timeframe, low capex requirements and scalability are important factors in retaining an attractive exit option. This philosophy is core to the Company's strategy in developing projects.
