First Vanadium pushes Carlin toward updated resource



In mid-2018, First Vanadium (TSXV: FVAN; US-OTC: FVANF) drilled 69 reverse circulation holes as part of the phase two drilling program at its Carlin vanadium project, 9.6 km south of Carlin, Nevada.

Of those, 33 were step out holes and 36 were infill holes. The company recently reported results from 10 of those step-out holes.

The drilling focused on a 220-by-300-metre area and connected shallow, near-horizontal mineralization from the nearest drill holes. Highlights include 32 metres grading 0.81% vanadium oxide (V2O5) from 9 metres downhole, 27.5 metres at 0.44% V2Ofrom 6 metres downhole, and 15.2 metres at 0.45% V2O5from 15.2 metres downhole.

The project is now defined by 216 holes from First Vanadium’s mid- and late-year drill programs, as well as Union Carbide’s 1960s drilling.
