Throughout 2023, ASM has continued to deliver on its unique mine to metals strategy.

From early establishment activities at the Dubbo Project, to production ramp-up at our Korean Metals Plant, ASM is building an alternative supply chain of rare earths, critical minerals and high-tech metals that will support the clean energy transition.

As set out by ASM MD & CEO Rowena Smith in her presentation, as we look to 2024, we have a clear pathway ahead for our Dubbo Project.

Targets include, finalising offtakes and early establishment activities, completing project financing, and taking final investment decision.

IMARC 2023

The ASM team enjoyed a packed agenda at the 2023 International Mining and Resources Conference +Expo (IMARC), participating in several insightful panel discussions, engaging with a range of national and international government stakeholders and presenting the ASM mine to metals opportunity to a broad investor audience.

Participating in two panel sessions, ASM Managing Director and CEO Rowena Smith provided her thoughts on the practical steps needed to facilitate an alternative global supply of critical minerals, and the significance of partnerships at all points of Australia’s critical minerals value chain when looking to achieve this.

Following up on Rowena’s comments, Bloomberg TV conducted a live interview at the event, where she had the opportunity to further discuss ASM and Australia’s role in the creation of an alternative critical minerals supply chain.   

With a large international audience, on the sidelines of the event ASM also participated in ‘Korea Day in Sydney’ – facilitated by Austrade and KOMIR Australia – where ASM’s General Counsel and Company Secretary Annaliese Eames presented the ASM story.

At the Mines and Money Investment Theatre, Rowena had the opportunity to walk investors through the Company’s mine to metals strategy, highlighting the progress made at both our Dubbo Project and Korean Metals Plant over the past year.

And the Dubbo Project was also a hot topic of conversation when the team had the opportunity to speak directly to federal Minister for Resources the Hon Madeleine King MP and New South Wales Minister for National Resources, the Hon Courtney Houssos MP.

With a unique ore body comprising light and heavy rare earths, zirconium, hafnium and niobium, strong financials, and compelling ESG credentials, the Dubbo Project represents a robust investment in the national interest and a strategic opportunity for Australia.
