Australian Strategic Materials


Australian Strategic Materials (ASM) is building a global rare earths and critical minerals business to provide the high-tech metals needed to solve the challenges of today and the future.

ASM has its cornerstone rare earths and critical minerals project in Dubbo, Australia, and its flagship high-tech metals plant in Ochang, South Korea. ASM intends to develop the Dubbo Project to produce a range of metal oxides and mixed chlorides. When the Dubbo Project is constructed, the products will be metallised at ASM’s Metals Plants, the first of which is in Ochang, Korea. The Korean Metals Plant opened in 2022, with an initial focus on neodymium products and titanium alloy.

Across all its operations, ASM wants to leave a legacy that delivers enduring benefits to the communities and regions where it operates and will work to ensure it manages environmental impacts, respects human rights, minimises greenhouse gas emissions, and supports local communities.
