Delivering critical materials

ASM is an emerging integrated producer of critical materials for a diverse range of advanced and clean technologies. To achieve this, we’re advancing the Dubbo Project, a long-term, sustainable and secure source of rare earths, zirconium, niobium and hafnium. We’re also advancing new minerals and metallisation processes to achieve our vision of delivering “mine to manufacturer” critical materials.

Dubbo Project

The Dubbo Project is a large in-ground polymetallic resource of zirconium, rare earths, niobium, hafnium, tantalum and yttrium. The project represents an alternative, sustainable and reliable source of these materials and is ready for construction, subject to financing.

Novel metallisation process

ASM’s innovative metallisation process converts oxides into high-purity metals, alloys and powders using up to 70% less energy than conventional methods. It is applicable for all Dubbo Project oxides, as well as many other critical metals that are produced from oxides, such as titanium. Following the success of our pilot plant, the first metallisation plant will be constructed in South Korea.
