Balla Balla comes closer

THE Balla Balla vanadium project in the Pilbara under development by Tanganyika Gold Ltd is closer to economic fruition.

Tanganyika Gold has clinched a sales agreement with Germany’s largest steel producer Thyssen Krupp Metallur-gie GmbH. The company will purchase the bulk of production from the Balla Balla project.

Thyssen Krupp is a subsidiary of the major German industrial group, Thyssen Krupp AG, which is rated as one of the largest steel producers in Europe.

The agreement provides for the purchase by Thyssen Krupp of 2,400 tonnes of vanadium in the form of ferrovanadium over five years, with provision for automatic renewal for a further five years.

Initial production from Balla Balla is planned at the rate of 6,000t of vanadium per annum, equivalent to 3240t of ferrovanadium.

The project is due to be commissioned next year.
