• Firefinch spinout Leo Lithium has seen its share price fall since listing on 23 June
  • Oceana Lithium has two lithium projects – one in Brazil and another in the NT
  • With a history dating back to 1869 New Zealand’s MOVE Logistics Group plans an ASX debut in July

As we approach a new financial year, resources companies dominate the ASX debut list.  Sarytogan Graphite is due to list today, while  eight resource companies are gearing up for IPOs in July.

But take note that these listing dates are speculative and can change.  If you want to know more contact the company direct for a better idea of when they expect to start trading on the ASX.

How are newly listed IPOs tracking?

Firstly, let’s look back at  recently listed companies, who it would be fair say bravely made their ASX debut during volatile times with the ASX 200 falling ~8% in June. With the debuts mostly from the resources sector it is worth noting that the S&P/ASX 200 Resources sector also shed 8% in June.

OD6 Metals (ASX:OD6)

Listed: 22 June

IPO: $8m at $0.20

OD6 holds a 100% interest in the Splinter Rock Project and Grass Patch Project which are in the Goldfields-Esperance region of WA.

The projects are considered prospective for clay rare earth elements (REEs), and the aim is delineating and defining economic resources and reserves to develop into a future revenue generating operational mine.

Clay REE deposits are presently economically extracted in China, the dominant world producer. Since listing its share price has fallen to 17 cents.

Leo Lithium (ASX:LLL)

Listed: 23 June

IPO: $100m at $0.70

The Firefinch (ASX:FFX) spinoff is focused on the Goulamina lithium project in Mali, which is expected to be one of the largest hard rock lithium mines in the world once it enters production in 2024.

The project is being developed in a 50/50 joint venture with Ganfeng, the world’s largest lithium chemical producer by production capacity, providing funding, offtake and operational support to de-risk development.

Goulamina is one of the few spodumene projects globally in the execute phase with FID approved by the boards of Firefinch and Ganfeng and early stage development underway.

Plus, the project is substantially funded to production with total funding commitments of up to US$194 million. But Leo has had a rocky start to listed life with its share price falling to 54 cents since IPO.
