We are Magnium

Australia is primed to capitalise on the rising global demand for critical minerals, driven in large part by their role in the transition to a low-carbon and digitized economy. Critical minerals are essential for renewable energy and clean technology applications (batteries, permanent magnets, solar panels and wind turbines), they are also required inputs for advanced manufacturing supply chains, including defence and security technologies, consumer electronics, agriculture, medical applications and critical infrastructure. Economies that quickly secure a position in shifting supply chains will be well situated for long-term economic growth and prosperity.Magnium is the foundation and bedrock for Australia to become the world leader in the extraction, production, and processing of the critical mineral, magnesium.We have globally patented world-leading, environmentally sustainable magnesium production technology to help our country reap the benefits of this critical mineral. We also have the skills, resources, and determination to become a global leader, developing our own local capabilities and providing support to Australian communities for generations to come.

About Magnesium Metal

As the eighth-most abundant metal in the universe and one of the lightest and most pliable metals used in alloy die casting and machining, magnesium has a wide range of uses and applications across many different industries.Although too volatile, corrosive and combustible to be used in engineering applications by itself, pure magnesium can easily be combined with other lightweight metals and moulded into almost any shape or texture. This creates the perfect compound material for thin-wall and complex structure formation and is a popular choice for projects that require intricate work.Magnesium metal also offers an attractive cost-to-material ratio, making it growth in-demand option for use in bulk machining or mass production.

Magnesium is…

 

  • the 8th most abundant metal in the universe
  • 34% lighter than aluminium
  • 60% lighter than titanium
  • 70% lighter than steel
  • 100 times better than plastic at dissipating heat
  • Stronger in most applications than other structural metals
  • Listed on the critical minerals list of the US, UK, EU, and Australia
  • Found in abundance in regional Australia
