Key Points

  • Dynamic Metals starts trading on Monday 16 Jan
  • New listing is effectively a spin-off by Jindalee Resources
  • Dynamic raised $7m in its IPO

Jindalee Resources (ASX:JRL) has spun off its Australian assets under pending bourse listee Dynamic Metals. 

Dynamic Metals raised $7m in an IPO and begins trading on the ASX Monday 16 January 2023. 

Dynamic issued 35m shares at 20c each for the raise. The company intends to trade under the ticker DYM

This move is a while in the making. Back in April last year, Jindalee first flagged its intention to spin off its Australian assets. 

Three projects 

Dynamic Metals will own three projects once it begins trading: 

Widgiemootha will be the initial focus for the company, according to Dynamic’s Prospectus, “given its significant position in this proven province which boasts a number of operating mines.” 

Why the spin off? 

Jindalee is ultimately keen to see its coffers fund its sole US lithium play, the McDermitt project. 

Jindalee is seeking to create lithium phosphate at its US project, which Jindalee noted in October last year “has been shown to be a potential precursor chemical for production of Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) batteries.” 

Ultimately, Jindalee is taking a stab at competing with the traditional lithium ion battery, a product resilient in its stubbornness against competing substitution technologies. 

Wood Mackenzie expect LFP batteries to overtake Lithium Nickel Cobalt Manganese (NCM) batteries before 2030.

LFP batteries are themselves variations of standard lithium-ion batteries (not to be confused with Lithium Iron), but, one big advantage is that LFP batteries do not require cobalt.

  • Company’s share price is $1.90 at 11AM AEST Friday 13 Jan
