Largo Resources Reports Record Quarterly Production of 2,513 Tonnes of Vanadium Pentoxide at Maracás Menchen Mine in Q3 2017

TORONTO, Oct. 3, 2017 /CNW/ - Largo Resources Ltd. ("Largo" or the "Company") (TSX: LGO) (OTCQB: LGORF) is excited to announce that it has achieved a new quarterly production record at its Maracás Menchen Mine during Q3 2017. The Company produced 2513 tonnes of vanadium pentoxide ("vanadium" or "V2O5") in Q3 2017 surpassing by 202 tonnes the Company's previous quarterly production record of 2311 tonnes set in Q2 2016. The production in Q3 2017 was 4.7% above the plant's nameplate capacity and is the result of our operating team's continuing efforts to ensure consistent production.

Concurrently with these new production records, the average price range of V2O5 for Q3 2017 was US$8.74/lb, which represents an approximate 249% increase over the US$3.51 average price for fiscal Q3 2016 (Source: Metal Bulletin).

"Largo anticipates that its continuing positive operational performance and low cost production will deliver record breaking results as vanadium prices continue to remain high. Largo has emerged as a key player in the vanadium industry" said Largo's President and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Mark A. Smith. Mr. Smith continued, "We believe that Largo's position as one of the only pure-play vanadium producers uniquely positions Largo to benefit from the current realities of the vanadium market, including the current increase in vanadium prices."

About Largo

Largo Resources Ltd. is a growing strategic mineral company focused on the production of vanadium pentoxide at its Vanadio de Maracás Menchen Mine. Vanadium is primarily used as an alloy to strengthen steel and reduce its weight. Vanadium enhanced steels are used in a vast and growing range of products that are used and encountered every day; including, rebar, automobiles, transport infrastructure etc. As trends in the steel industry now demand increasingly stronger and lighter products for advanced applications, the use of vanadium is expected to grow over the medium and long term.
