How is VPURE produced?
Vanadium at the Maracás Menchen mine is contained within massive titaniferous magnetite and possesses very low levels of contaminants.
Ore from the mine is crushed, milled, and sent through a magnetic separator to create a concentrate. This concentrate is then processed into vanadium pentoxide, high-purity vanadium or vanadium powder. It is then bagged or packed into barrels for sale. Largo uses only industry-proven equipment and processes to produce vanadium.
