The Speewah Vanadium deposits that are located at the Speewah Dome development project, are located 100 kilometres south of the Wyndham port and 110 kilometres southwest of Kununurra, in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. The project is accessed from the Great Northern Highway and 30 kilometres of unsealed outback track.

Speewah Vanadium is Located in Three Separate Deposits

The tenements covering the magnetite deposit at the Speewah Dome mineral development project are considered to contain one of the largest undeveloped vanadium/titanium deposits in the world. The vanadium is contained in three separate deposits; Buckman, Red Hill and Central. The vanadium and titanium is located within the magnetite deposits which have a combined Measured, Indicated and Inferred Resources that total 4.7 billion tonnes grading at 0.30 percent vanadium and 0.23 percent titanium in the three deposits. Metallurgical tests to date have shown that when separated the magnetite concentrate features 54.2 percent iron, 2.48 percent vanadium and 14.9 percent titanium.

Ore Bodies Containing Speewah Vanadium are up to 80 Metres Thick

The deposits are located in a flat lying geometry that contains surface outcrops of the ore body that can reach thicknesses of up to 80 metres. The deposits promise a large scale mining operation on a low strip ratio that would last for quite a long time.

King River Copper Started out as NiPlats Limited in 2007

The Speewah Dome mining tenements are owned by King River Copper Limited, an Australian mineral exploration company that focuses on exploration of titanium, gold,vanadium, copper, hematite and fluorspar deposits. King River Copper Limited began life as NiPlats Limited that was first listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) in 2007. It's name was changed to Speewah Metals Limited in November 2010 and to King River Copper Limited in April 2013. It has a wholly owned subsidiary company, Speewah Mining Pty Ltd.

Studies of Vanadium at the Speewah Dome were Completed in 2010

The company's tenements in the East Kimberley region of Western Australia cover an area of 780 square kilometres. It's discovery of copper and gold within the Speewah Dome tenement area in 2010 resulted in a lot of the company's focus being turned in that direction although it did complete studies on its fluorite and vanadium projects at that time.
