ASM’s Dubbo Project is a rare earths and critical minerals project with a resource that includes neodymium, praseodymium, terbium, dysprosium, zirconium, niobium and hafnium.

ASM intends to develop the Dubbo Project to process on-site and produce a range of metal oxides and mixed chlorides.

When constructed, materials from the Dubbo Project will be refined at ASM’s flagship Korean Metals Plant, in Ochang, Korea.

The initial focus of the plant is on neodymium metals and alloys.
