Aura Energy recently announces it has begun investigation for vanadium resource at its Tiris Uranium project in Mauritania, North Africa.

Mr Peter Reeve, Aura's Executive Chairman, said:

"The potential for vanadium recovery at the Tiris Uranium Project is an exciting initiative which highlights the ongoing culture of innovation and strong science within Aura Energy and its team. This has the potential to influence Tiris production costs strongly and takes advantage of a commodity that is currently undergoing a significant resurgence".

 "As a complementary strategy to the activity at the Häggån deposit in Sweden, this Tiris Vanadium Project will strengthen Aura's credentials as an important future vanadium producer”

Aura Energy is an Australian based minerals company that has major polymetallic and uranium projects with large resources in Europe and Africa.
