Largo Resources Ltd (OTCMKTS:LGORF) shares saw a kneejerk lower on Tuesday, but still remain quite interesting as one of the very few firms that actively mines and produces vanadium pentoxide. One of its main uses is to make steel products stronger and less susceptible to corrosion. To further flesh out the story, the company just reported third-quarter 2018 production results from its Maracás Menchen Mine highlighting record quarterly vanadium pentoxide production during the quarter and a new record overall V2O5 recovery rate during the month of September.
According to the release, “The Maracás Menchen Mine achieved yet another quarterly production record of 2,563 tonnes of V2O5 produced in Q3 2018 compared to 2,513 tonnes in Q3 2017 and 2,458 in Q2 2018. This marks the third consecutive quarter of strong production in 2018 and the highest quarterly production recorded in the Company’s history.” In other words, despite the negative reaction in the stock, the company’s primary value proposition continues to progress.
