Abstract Phase compositions and microstructures of waste solid slags obtained during the production of ferrovanadium and ferromolybdenumvanadium alloys have been studied. The slag phase composition and the vanadium distribution have been investigated using optical microscopy, X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and electron microprobe techniques (EPMA). A series of simple and complex oxides, calcium aluminates and silicates were identified, including a new phase SVCA (complex calcium vanadium oxide-silicate) with the composition Ca4Al15.14V5.15Mg1.0Fe0.026Ti0.3Mn0.024Si2.36O40, space group PT and lattice parameters a = 10.273, b = 10.634, c = 8.808 Å, α = 106.24, ß = 95.71, γ= 124.47°, z = 4. In a previous investigation the crystal structure of SVCA, which is of aenigmatite type, was determined and refined to R = 0.046
