Vertically integrated vanadium redox flow battery firm VanadiumCorp Resource has confirmed Paul McGuigan has joined its board of directors in the new role of vice president of business development.
He joins as the Canadian firm to help it commercialise its green vanadium recovery process in Canada and across the globe.
McGuigan will help the company implement its vertically integrated strategy to commercially develop technologies for vanadium and environmentally friendly technologies in mining and energy.
McGuigan said: “The company’s environmentally responsible, patented, hydrometallurgical processes for upgrading vanadiferous titanomagnetite and ilmenite concentrates promise to produce high-quality vanadium and titanium feedstocks.
“A reliable vanadium supply will anchor the production of electrolytes for the company’s proprietary designs of vanadium redox flow batteries.”
McGuigan is a professional geoscientist registered with the Association of Engineers and Geoscientists of the Province of BC, with 45 years of international experience in mineral exploration, deposit evaluation, mine operations, and corporate governance.
