KMP hosts Dubbo Regional Council delegation

We’re strengthening ties between Dubbo and Ochang to create an alternative end-to-end critical minerals supply chain.

ASM’s Korean Metals Plant (KMP) in Ochang, South Korea has hosted a delegation from the Dubbo Regional Council. As part of a self-funded trip to Korea and Japan, the delegation took the opportunity to see how ASM’s world class facility is manufacturing the high-tech metals and alloys needed for the global energy transition.

Our metals and alloys are the critical ingredient for the permanent magnets used in advanced clean technologies such as electric vehicles and wind turbines. Ultimately, the KMP will use the rare earth oxide feedstock processed at our Dubbo Project.

ASM’s Dubbo Project is located 25km south of Dubbo in central-western NSW. A globally significant resource of rare earths and critical minerals, once operational the Dubbo Project will mine, separate and refine a wide range of oxides, before metallising at our own plant(s) or shipping to global customers.

It’s our mine to metals strategy…

Sincere thanks to Dubbo Mayor Mathew Dickerson and the Dubbo Regional Council team for taking the time to learn more about our operations in South Korea.

We’re looking forward to building the ties between the two locations, in support of our alternative critical minerals supply chain.
