The truly really great thing is we have , the new and unique method of processing and recovery should enable optimised recovery compared to the past giving value to BMR Group . I hope people realise how important this is . What seemed uneconomical previously can become a very tasty target indeed !
The value in is the secondary products and by products some if refined can achieve very high value per kg . The supply compared with demand in the local market as well as global makes some products extremely desirable Vanadium is fast becoming a future game changer and very interesting indeed . iMO
will only prick up its ears when it hears noises of significant progress with plant construction, until then we will drift around in the sea of tranquility whilst the sands of time slowly trickle away........
nubie1 - These are my rough valuations of the metals historically mined at Kabwe, in today's rates -
Zn = $5.08bn Pb = $1.78bn V = $164m (RNS 20/1/2017 states $21k/tonne) Ag = $46.6m Cd = $1m (currently averaging around $5000/tonne from what I can glean off t'internet) Cu = $180K
Total = around $7Bn of which by far the most important are the top 3 plus Silver. The total value of the V extracted doesn't appear to be a huge amount. I'd guess the rest of the minor stuff could be ignored, IMO. As mentioned a couple of years back, most Rare Earths are not that rare or valuable and can be a pig to extract anyway.
