DY6 Metals Ltd overview
Mining company DY6 Metals has listed on the ASX and aims to explore its landholdings for several metals. They’re looking at three prospective projects in southern Malawi with heavy rare earth elements (HREE) and other minerals.
The Machinga asset has potential for heavy rare earth elements (HREE), niobium, tantalum and zirconium. There has been some historical exploration at the site, but DY6’s is planning a new drill program to gather further information about its geology.
The Salambidwe Project is located near the border with Mozambique. Similarly, the team believes the area could have HREE, niobium and tantalum minerals. They are searching for platinum group metals, mainly palladium, copper and nickel at the Ngala Hill asset.
HREEs like dysprosium and terbium are valued for their use in magnets in wind turbines and EVs, as well as various other technologies. The company’s name is derived from the chemical symbol for dysprosium (DY) and its place on the periodic table, which is number 66.
Niobium is mainly used in alloys and is a key ingredient to help strengthen metals like steel. Most of the demand for tantalum comes from its use in electronic components. Zircon is predominantly used in ceramics, but also has various industrial applications.
Malawi’s mining industry has attracted interest in recent times, as demand for these metals grows with the green transition. Only time will tell whether DY6 is successful in its search for minerals and plans to develop the projects.
