How are newly listed IPOs tracking?

Sierra Rutile Holdings (ASX:SRX)

Listed: 27 July

The  Iluka Resources (ASX:ILU) spin-off listed last week with a multi-mine mineral sands operation straddling the Bonthe and Moyamba districts in southern Sierra Leone.

Natural rutile pricing has exploded, with Sierra Rutile collecting US$1195/t in Q1 2021 and US$1459/t in March this year, with margins at a very healthy US$562/t.

And the company’s 13-year Sembehun development is one of the few new rutile deposits that could be developed globally in the coming years.

Here’s Josh Chiat’s rundown on all you need to know about why this could be a smokie.

Since listing its share price has dropped 22.79% from $0.43 to $0.332.
