Building an ethical, reliable and sustainable supply chain for battery materials
100% Australian Owned
100% Auditable Supply Chain
Ethically Derived in Low Risk Jurisdiction
Sconi is 100% Australian-owned and, when fully developed, will be one of the world’s lowest cost producers of sustainable and ethical produced cobalt for the electric vehicle battery sector
Australian Mines Sconi operation will be a low risk, ethically derived fully auditable supply chain
Australian Mines supports the vision of a world where the mining industry respects the human rights and aspirations of affected communities, provides safe, healthy and supportive workplaces, minimises harm to the environment and leaves positive legacies.
Australian Mines is committed to the highest Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) standards throughout our operations and sustainable and ethical business practices.
Australian Mines Sconi Project will be a leading supplier of high-grade, end to end fully auditable production of advanced battery materials. Sconi is 100% Australian-owned and, when fully developed, will be one of the world’s lowest cost producers of ethically derived cobalt for the electric vehicle battery sector.
When fully operational, Sconi will enjoy the advantage of operating in Australia, a low risk jurisdiction, with a fully auditable supply chain that will make Australian Mines an attractive partner for the supply of nickel and cobalt materials to the Electric Vehicle and clean Energy Storage industries.
At Australian Mines, we have world class assets, great people, and a dream to create a positive and enduring legacy where we work and where we go. This approach is aligned with our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) credentials and integrated practices.
Our aim is to decarbonise and electrify the world through the development of ethically sourced advanced battery materials.
Australian Mines is the first mineral resource company in the world to be Carbon Neutral certified under the Australian Government’s Climate Active program, in recognition of reaching net zero emissions in 2020. Australian Mines intends to maintain Carbon Neutral certification through the life of its projects.
Over the immediate term, Australian Mines intends on supporting and participating in a third-party verification and certification process against a comprehensive best-practice standard that addresses environmentally and socially responsible mining.
Our ESG commitment reflects our shared responsibility to our internal and external stakeholders, including the communities in which we operate. Australian Mines commitment to ESG leadership arises from the Board and Senior Management’s view that it is the right way to operate the business, while also emerging as a key consideration for our offtake partners LG Energy Solution.
Through our various ESG memberships and as a publicly listed company on the ASX, we provide detailed disclosures on our operations and progress in this critical area.

When Sconi starts commissioning, expected in 2028, the mine will also process ore into advanced battery chemicals on the same site, making Sconi one of the most competitive technology metals operations in the world.
Long Term Staff
Ore from the proposed Sconi Project will be mined and processed into advanced battery chemicals on the same site. This approach has the potential to make Sconi one of the most competitive cobalt producing nickel operations in the world.
Australian Mines has completed two years of test work to gain a firm understanding of the processing flow chart for the planned commercial scale High-Pressure Acid Leach (HPAL) and Solvent Extraction (SX) processing plant at our Sconi Project.
The Company's demonstration scale plant has already set a new benchmark for the largest known shipment of battery-grade nickel and cobalt materials from Australian mined and processed ore.
