The board of Alkane has resolved to progress the demerger of Australian Strategic Materials Limited (ASM) and listing ASM on the ASX, subject to finalisation of outstanding regulatory matters and shareholder approval at an Alkane Shareholder Meeting expected to be convened in early July 2020. ASM is currently anticipated to list in mid-July 2020.

If the Demerger Resolution is approved by Alkane shareholders at the Shareholder Meeting, Eligible Shareholders will receive one (1) ASM share for every five (5) Alkane shares held on the Record Date.

• Australian Strategic Materials Ltd (ASM) is an emerging producer of value add metals and oxides products
• Established in 2000, historically a wholly-owned subsidiary of ASX-listed Alkane Resources Ltd and holding company for the Dubbo Project
• ASM to be standalone listed entity in early July 2020 (subject to shareholder resolution)
• Cash of A$20 million (1 April 2020) and no debt
• Project located 400km northwest of Sydney; Land and resource wholly owned
.

Critical minerals are:
• Noted as critical by all major manufacturing nations
• Essential to national economy + security
• Vulnerable to supply disruptions, e.g. COVID19
• Essential to new and green technologies

Zirconium, Rare Earth Elements, Niobium and Hafnium are critical for:
1. Clean energy and reduced emissions (e.g. EV’s, renewables)
2. High-Tech Products (e.g. phones, tablets)
3. Health & Well-being Products (e.g. MRI, replacement joints)
4. Aerospace & Manufacturing (e.g. jet engines)
 
Alkane ALK holding an EGM on Thursday, 16 July 2020 at 10:00am to vote for the demerger.

If passed, it is now likely ASM will list late July (ASX website has tentive 31 July)

Australian Strategic Materials Ltd (ASM) is progressing the Dubbo Project to become a key global supplier of specialty metals and rare earths. These are critical for advanced technologies in high-growth sectors, including electric vehicles, clean energy, healthcare and robotics.

Our world-class Dubbo Project is an alternative, sustainable and reliable source of premium-quality zirconium, rare earths, niobium and hafnium as oxides and metals. These critical materials that are essential to advanced technologies and only available in limited quantities are mainly supplied from China.

Thanks @Dona Ferentes . It will be interesting to see what ASM lists at on 31st July.

ASM PRODUCTION OF TITANIUM METAL ALLOY CONFIRMING UP TO 50 % ENERGY SAVINGS

Highlights:
• Subsequent run of pilot plant produces another 22kg of titanium metal alloy
• This test run confirms this patented metal production method uses up to 50% less energy than current commercial production methods
• Electro refining process to produce high purity (99.9%) titanium metal progressing with results expected in August

This is an ALK announcement, but part of Australian Strategic Materials....
ASM partner, ZironTech has successfully produced another run of titanium metal alloy at the joint venture commercial pilot plant in South Korea. This subsequent run produced approximately 22 kilograms and confirmed energy savings of up to 50 per cent compared to current commercial production methods.
ASM is successfully progressing the pilot plant testwork on low emission, high purity metal technology to produce zirconium, titanium and rare earths for permanent magnet metals. The production of metals indicates significant cost benefits to ASM’s integrated business strategy and is key in the development of the Dubbo Project to supply critical materials.
 
ASX has indicated that all requirements for listing have been met and that ASM’s first day of trading is confirmed to be Thursday, 30 July 2020. at 12 o'clock

Lining up - looking at $1.20 ?? !! ??

Don't think you got your $1.20 Dona.:(

Clearly you have been far too effective at highlghting the prospective value of ASM. :D
Well done.:xyxthumbs

Yes Miner, a great bonus for all holders of ALK, and the opening price far exceeded what most holders thought it would be. I'm now looking to hold for the long term now as REE is going to be in demand since China has cut exports to the USA thanks to Trumps actions over the Covid19 pandemic

Good luck @pb112 !
Historically mostly the off spring stocks following demerger have done better their parents.
 
this one is coming back to the quay:

ASM since floating (1 minute)
View attachment 106785
And back to the quay, very quickly.

I was going to throw a bun at this baby elephant out of ALK but I never try to catch knives.

On my watchlist and will check the Nd market in Beijing before unbending my trunk down the track.

Price presently $1.00

ASM will need to raise $1.3B to get their ducks lined up.
Current Dubbo Project IRR is about 18% but quite few unknowns.
Lots more will be known by end of year, but right now it's a dart board with the bullseye still hidden.
 
lining up the achievements
• High purity titanium (Ti) metal 20.8 kg produced assaying 99.83 %
• Innovative metals process confirms 70 % lower energy consumption
• ZironTech optimisation increase metal efficiency by 50%


followed by:
Australian Strategic Materials has entered into a binding heads of agreement to acquire 95% of its joint venture partner Ziron Technology Corporation, which owns patented low emission, high purity metal-refining technology. ASM will also acquire the pilot plant constructed in 2020 to confirm the technology.
The patented technology is a more environmentally friendly, sustainable and cost-effective alternative to existing conventional, energy-intensive metallisation processes. The technology has been successfully applied during pilot plant testwork to all major metals found within ASM’s Dubbo Project including zirconium, hafnium, and rare earths for permanent magnet alloys. In addition, it provides an opportunity to expand its business with the production of titanium metal and associated alloys.
- well, what do you know ... we may even manage to be more than mere exporters of raw materials? Albeit in association with the Koreans.
ASM’s focus is now at commencing a metal plant feasibility which will confirm the optimal size of a plant in Korea, with the opportunity to build additional plants in key manufacturing areas in Australia, North America, and Europe.
easy as ABC ... Anywhere But China
