The Lucknow Measured, Indicated and Inferred scandium resource now stands at 6.24Mt @ 169 g/t Sc with a higher grade zone comprising 4.12Mt @ 206 g/t Sc using a 120g/t Sc COG, containing over 1.2 million Kg of scandium oxide. Within the Lucknow scandium resource, there is a lower iron portion of 1Mt at 206 g/t Sc at 18% Fe.
The new product output commenced at the Urals aluminium smelter (UAZ) after the installation and launch of the pilot unit for the processing of scandium concentrate into scandium oxide. Experts at RUSAL Engineering and Technology Centre earlier developed the unique carbonization technology for scandium extraction from the red mud and this technology makes no negative effect on alumina production.
