Astron — a critical minerals mining and production company.

Astron aims to develop long-term, sustainable value for shareholders and other stakeholders by establishing itself as a critical minerals producer and a leading mineral sands production company. The company is at a key juncture with the opportunity to bring into production the major, long-life Donald Rare Earth and Mineral Sands project – a globally significant new source of zircon and titanium dioxide supply, as well as a valuable rare earth production stream.

Donald Rare Earth & Mineral Sands Project

The Donald Project, located in regional Victoria represents a material new source of supply of critical mineral elements, containing significant rare earth mineral elements of neodymium, praseodymium, dysprosium and terbium.  As to zircon, Donald is expected to commence production at a stage when global supply is challenged by the maturing of established production sources and a lack of quality, of well-advanced new projects. Donald is unique given its advanced stage of evaluation and regulatory approvals and potential longevity of production (at least 40 years) and its significant critical mineral assemblage.
