Astron — a mineral sands mining and production company.
Astron aims to develop long-term, sustainable value for shareholders and other stakeholders by establishing itself as a leading mineral sands mining, concentrating and production company. The company is at a key juncture with the opportunity to bring into production the major, long-life Donald Mineral Sands project – a globally significant new source of zircon and titanium dioxide supply, as well as a valuable rare earth production stream.
Donald Mineral Sands Project
The Donald project, located in regional Victoria, represents a material new source of supply, particularly of zircon, at a stage when global supply is challenged by the maturing of established production sources and a dearth of quality, or well-advanced new projects. Donald is unique in terms of new mineral sands production sources, given its advanced stage of evaluation and regulatory approvals and potential longevity of production (at least 40 years) and relatively high zircon assemblage.
