Most recently, testing showed that the project’s scandium oxide met all the requirements for use in an aluminium-scandium feedstock to support master alloy development.

As a result, Australian Mines moved on to the next stage of its research and development (R&D) project with Metalysis, a UK-headquartered metals and alloys technology company.

The progress is in line with the company’s focus on commercialising scandium oxide, scheduled for production concurrent to cobalt sulphate and nickel sulphate from Sconi.
