  • Investor sentiment for rare earths stocks is flying
  • There is about 750g of magnet rare earths on every EV motor, about 2 tonnes in offshore wind turbines
  •  EVs, wind turbines are exponential growth sectors

Our High Voltage column wraps all the news driving ASX stocks with exposure to lithium, cobalt, graphite, nickel, rare earths, manganese, magnesium, and vanadium.

 

Everyone knows the lithium bull is well and truly charging, but what the hell just happened to rare earths sentiment?

It’s flying, that’s what.

Project acquisitions, drilling, high grade rock chips (not worth a re-rate on their own) — even a sniff of REE prospectivity has ASX minnows enjoying huge gains.

In the past few weeks these things have happened:

Every single one of these announcements sparked a +20% share price spike. Very lithium-esque.

Then there’s Lynas Rare Earths (ASX:LYC), which yesterday announcing a major disruption to production at its downstream separation plant in Kuantan, Malaysia. That’s bad news.

And yet its share price actually increased, before finishing flat for the day.

 

Why the step change in investor sentiment?

We called Ionic Rare Earths (ASX:IXR) managing director Tim Harrison, who was in London recovering from jet lag, with some questions.

“There is about 750g of magnet rare earths on every EV motor,” Harrison told Stockhead.

That adds up quickly if BNEF’s prediction is correct and ~40m EVs are sold each year by 2030.

Then there’s the gigantic offshore wind turbines.

“Some of the beasts they are building now have 6 tonnes of magnets in them, or about 2 tonnes of rare earth metals,” Harrisons says.

“And then you look at the number of wind turbines set to be installed over the next 30 years … and yeah. There’s a [supply] conundrum.

“This is an application where substitution is not an option.”

So, there it is. Two industries, growing exponentially, in tandem, and both requiring large amounts of rare earths.

No wonder everyone is excited.
