Sentiment: Bullish

Industry: Rare Earths

Sector: Materials

Lynas Rare Earth is an Australian Mining company, is the world’s largest rare earth producer outside of China.

The Lynas Mt. Weld mine in Western Australia is acknowledged as one of the world’s premier rare earths deposit. Lynas also operates the world’s largest single rare earths processing plant in Malaysia where it produces high quality separate rare earth materials for export to manufacturing markets in Asia, Europe and the United States.

Lyna’s rare earth materials are used in many high tech and future facing applications, including electronics, wind turbines and hybrid and electric vehicles. Lynas sits apart from other rare earth manufacturers by offering products with assured provenance from mine to finished products.

Rare Earth oxides are mined and initially processed at Mt. Weld Concentration Plant. The high quality products includes:

  • Neodymium and Praseodymium (NdPr) used in magnets
  • Lanthanum (La)
  • Cerium (ce) and
  • Mixed Heavy Rare Earths (SEG).

The material are then shipped to Lynas 100-hectare advanced materials plant in Gebeng, Malaysia, where the concentrate is separated and processed into high quality Rare Earth materials.

A part of Lynas 2025 growth strategy, the company is expanding its industrial footprint with planned Rare Earths Processing Facility in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia.

What are Rare Earths?

Although the name says otherwise, Rare earth elements are relatively abundant in the earth’s crust, with cerium being the 25th most abundant. This makes it as abundant as copper. Because of the elements geochemical properties, rare earth elements are typically dispersed. This means they are not often found in concentrated enough clusters to make them viable to mine. It was the scarcity of these minerals that led to them being called rare earths.

✅ Rare Earth Oxides (REOs) are high sought after resources, particularly within the high technology and low carbon industries.

✅ Record quarter for the period ending 31 March 2022 as result of strong demand together with excellent production outcomes.

✅ Record sales revenue of A$327.2m and record sales receipts of A$262m.

✅ Increased production allowed Lynas to meet this continued strong demand throughout the quarter and most likely record Full Year result.

✅ Favorable Macroeconomics with the market price for NdPr continued to strengthen during the March quarter. The NdPr price has strengthened significantly over the past two years and the average daily price reached USD145.4/Kg (ex-VAT) in February 2022, before modering to USD 144.2/Kg (ex-VAT) in March 2022.

✅ NdPr prices set to keep increasing due strong demand, geopolitical conflict and ongoing disruption on supply chain.

Why NdPr?

While most of the market is looking up for Lithium and other popular commodities, NdPr has also done an unprecedented run during 2021, and many analysts suggest rally will continue all the way to 2022. As mentioned before, NdPr creates the strongest magnets known and these magnets convert electricity into mechanical energy. These magnets are used in several different devices, such as solar farms, medical equipment, smartphones, computers, military tech, wind turbines and many others.

✅ Lynas continue to explore with promising recent exploration results from a single 1 kilometre deep diamond drill hole into the fresh carbonatite below the current Mt Weld Rare Earth pid. Interesting enough, exploration drilling was partially funded by the Western Australian Government Exploration Incentive Scheme (EIS) – Lynas Rare Earths was awarded a $14.8 million grant as part of the Australian government’s.

✅ Kalgoorlie Processing Facility received all Ministerial approvals. Updates are likely to have positive effect on SP.

✅ Record Production of 1,687t NdPr by Lynas Malaysia in March Quarter.

✅ Compelling Growth Possibility due the accelerating market demand.
