Tando Resources is a junior minerals company developing the SPD Vanadium Project in the Bushveld Province of South Africa. The company listed on the ASX in November 2017 after raising $4.5m at $0.043/share ($0.20/share adjusted for a 4.6:1 share split) and subsequently completed a placement to raise an additional $2m at $0.086/share (adjusted for share split). With the granting of a Mining Right over the project, Tando has commenced a resource drilling programme with outstanding high grade results to date. Drilling will enable a JORC Resource to be defined proving the basis for scoping and feasibility studies. Tando believes the SPD Project to be world class and with vanadium prices surging on strong demand, the economic opportunity appears robust with favorable industry metrics forecast at least through the medium term.
