Barrambie Project

Our Projects
Neometals wholly owns the Barrambie titanium and vanadium project (Barrambie) which has a granted mining permit and has been the subject of approximately AUD$30 million in Neometals exploration and evaluation expenditure since 2003.

What

Neometals wholly owns the Barrambie titanium and vanadium project (Barrambie) which has a granted mining permit and has been the subject of approximately AUD$30 million in Neometals exploration and evaluation expenditure since 2003.

Barrambie is located approximately 80km Northwest of Sandstone in Western Australia and is one of the largest vanadiferous-titanomagnetite (“VTM”) resources globally (280.1Mt at 9.18% TiO2 and 0.44% V2O5)*, containing the world’s second highest-grade hard rock titanium resource (53.6Mt at 21.17% TiO2 and 0.63% V2O5)* and high-grade vanadium resource (64.9Mt at 0.82% V2O5 and 16.9% TiO2) subsets based on the latest Neometals 2018 Mineral Resource Estimate*

Why

Barrambie is unique owing to its exceptionally high titanium resource grade coupled with high vanadium content and the weathered nature of the orebody. The project is well advanced with respect to permitting and development work which creates a significant opportunity to extract value, with partners, from both titanium and vanadium in a whole of deposit processing flowsheet.

Status

Comprehensive Barrambie development work has included piloting and advanced economic evaluation on a range of metallurgical processing routes. Future development is focused on hydrometallurgical (multi-stage leaching and acid regeneration) test-work and associated feasibility to give a complete and extensive data set to choose the best processing path from which to base Barrambie front end engineering work. An investment decision would follow.
