36. 36 Vanadium is the simplest and most developed flow battery How does a vanadium redox flow battery (VRFB) work? Source: IEEE Spectrum: It’s Big and Long - Lived, and It Won’t Catch Fire: The Vanadium Redox - Flow Battery , 26 October 2017 • Vanadium can exist in four different states, allowing for a single element to be used • Benefits include simplicity and no cross - contamination • In 2010, US DoE funded research at PNNL yielded an improved electrolyte formula • A flow battery was first developed by NASA in the 1970s and is charged and discharged by a reversible reduction - oxidation reacti on between the two liquid vanadium electrolytes of the battery • Unlike conventional batteries, electrolytes are stored in separated storage tanks, not in the power cell of the battery • During operation these electrolytes are pumped through a stack of power cells, or membrane, where an electrochemical reaction ta kes place and electricity is produced

35. 35 Bushveld Vametco Processing Steps Concentration Salt Roasting Leach Milling & Purification AMV precipitation Modified Vanadium Oxide Production Nitrovan ® shaft furnace • The ore is passed through a three - stage crushing and milling circuit to produce a product sizing suitable to liberate the ganged materials in the ore, typically 45% passing 75 microns and passed through a low intensity magnetic separation circuit to produce a magnetite concentrate product • The concentrate is roasted with sodium carbonate and sodium sulphate in a rotary kiln at temperatures of up to 1,150 o C to form water - soluble sodium vanadates. Solids exiting the rotary kiln are discharged directly into a rotary cooler that cools the solids sufficient for conveying to the leaching circuit • The cooled calcine is fed to a wet ball mill which grinds the agglomerated material for improved leaching and also acts as the first stage of leaching. The mill discharge slurry is pumped to belt filters to separate the vanadium rich solution and calcine tailings. The vanadium rich solution is pumped to thickeners where desilication and concentration of the vanadium - bearing leach liquor takes place. Calcine tailings are conveyed to the tailings disposal facility • Ammonium sulphate is added to the vanadium - bearing leach liquor which allows for the precipitation of vanadium in the form of ammonium metavanadate (AMV) • Nitrovan ® production – the MVO is mixed with carbon and a binder which is briquetted and fed into an induction shaft furnace under a nitrogen atmosphere to produce Nitrovan ® • The AMV filter cake is dried in a rotary dryer and thereafter transferred to the MVO Rotary Calciners to produce Modified Vanadium Oxide (MVO)

18. 18 Steel sector demand drivers ... • Circa 90% of vanadium demand is underwritten by the steel industry where it is used as an additive • China is the largest market for vanadium • The country’s vanadium consumption is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 2.3% up to 2017 due to a revision of the tensile strength of steel rebar products, announced in 2017 • Increasing intensity of use in steel in emerging markets, especially in China, due to improved enforcement of regulations • China’s new standard is designed to limit and eliminate the use of inferior steels in construction (Grade 2 rebar): - Grade 3 (400MPa), Grade 4 (500MPa), and Grade 5 (600MPa), will require 0.03% V, 0.06% V, and more than 0.1% V respectively - The above could lead to an increase in Chinese vanadium demand of over 30% or 10,000 tpa in 2018 ... with substantial energy storage upside • Vanadium’s unique characteristics positions it well for large scale, long duration energy storage using VRFBs • VRFB technology is already in commercial production with large (MW) scale deployments globally • China’s new National Development Plan’s (Document #1701) “focus includes 100MW - grade, vanadium redox flow battery energy storage stations” • Impact on vanadium demand significant as vanadium comprises 30 - 40% of cost of VRFB systems • Commercialisation of Energy in Europe, EC report: there will be economic potential for very large amounts (about 400 GW) of storage in the EU Robust Demand for Vanadium

17. 17 Vanadium Characteristics and Uses Vanadium is a grey, soft, ductile high value metal with several unique characteristics that position it well in the steel, alloys and chemicals sectors • Vanadium (V) is a rare chemical element, in pure form is a grey, soft, ductile element that does not occur in native form but as a component of minerals and as an impurity amongst hydrocarbons and bauxites • It readily forms several stable oxidation states (II, III, IV, and V) Steel • High strength - to - weight ratio • Corrosion resistance • Weldability • Fabricability Chemicals • Ability to exist in 4 different oxidation states • Water - soluble • Resistant to attack by alkalis, hydrochloric acid, sulphuric acid, and salt water The steel industry accounts for >90% of total vanadium consumption Vanadium electrolyte accounted for ~2% of global vanadium consumption in 2017, projected to grow to >20% by 2030 as VRFB deployments gain momentum Source: Bushveld Minerals analysis, TTP Squared Construction steel - rebar Alloys for aerospace industry Long duration utility scale batteries Characteristics
22. 22 Vanadium Redox Flow Battery Vanadium redox flows batteries estimated to contribute up to 20% of vanadium consumption by 2030 1. Long lifespan cycles: Ability to repeatedly charge/ discharge over 35,000 times for a lifespan of over 20 years 2. 100% depth of discharge: Without performance degradation is unique to VRFBs 3. Lowest cost per kWh when fully used at least once daily makes VRFBs today cheaper than Li - ion batteries 4.
