Alien Metals focus on bringing Hancock into production (VIDEO)

Why Alien Metals?

2023 Production

First shipments are expected to leave Hancock in 2023

Direct Shipping Ore

Keeps operating costs down and the mine profitable even at lower iron ore prices

#1 Mining Jurisdiction

Western Australia is the safest and most politically stable jurisdiction globally

Local Infrastructure

The Pilbara produces ~30% of global iron ore and thus has excellent local infrastructure and expertise


The potential for a major discovery to be made within the company’s various project areas is very high. Hancock, the soon to be in production direct shipping iron project in the Pilbara is the most advanced example of this with less than 75% of the overall area having been tested but already hosting more than 10mt of exploitable material

Experienced Team

Under new leadership in both the UK and Australia (IOCA) the rate of progress continues to accelerate
