Ferro-Alloy Resources is developing the large Balasausqandiq vanadium deposit, which benefits from access to existing power and logistics infrastructure and has the potential to become one of the largest and lowest cost producers globally. 

Key features

  • Balasausqandiq project is located in southern Kazakhstan
  • Strategic upstream vanadium asset – Feasibility Study currently being completed
  • Large resource, supporting long-life project and underpinning future expansion options
  • Deposit characteristics enable lower cost and less energy-intensive processing
  • Road, rail and power infrastructure in place
  • Existing, smaller treatment plant recovering vanadium from spent refinery catalysts
  • Vanadium traditionally used for micro-alloying steel, reducing global steel requirements
  • Emerging new end-market as battery metal

End uses

  • Vanadium is essential for micro-alloying steel, and vanadium redox batteries that have the potential to play an integral role in the establishment of reliable, base-load renewable energy
