Exploring Iron Ore and Precious Metals with Alien Metals

View descriptionShare

In this episode, we chat to Rob Mosig, Non-Executive Technical Director for Alien Metals who are a global minerals exploration and development company that will shortly make the transition to iron ore producer. The company now holds a collection of high-quality projects within its portfolio, spearheaded by its Hancock DSO (direct shipping ore) iron ore project in which it has a 90% holding, through its 100% owned subsidiary the Iron Ore Company of Australia (IOCA).

Rob is a geologist with over 30 years of experience in lateritic terrain, platinum group metals, diamonds, and precious metals and has been previously a founding CEO and MD of a few ASX-listed companies during his career. He talks about Alien Metals, its projects, exploration activities, and the strategic outlook for the company.


  • Rob has over 30 years of experience in the mining industry, particularly in platinum group metals, diamonds, and precious metals.
  • Alien Metals is a small junior exploration company with two significant brownfields projects in iron ore and platinum group metals, focusing on imminent development.
  • The strategic vision for Alien Metals includes transitioning to a miner in the near term by prioritising iron ore production while also developing the Pinderi Hills project for platinum and silver mining.
  • The key ingredients for Alien Metals to transition to a miner include building a strong team, focusing on quality projects, and managing finances carefully.
  • The exploration industry has evolved over the years with advancements in drilling technology and geophysical methods, providing opportunities for Alien Metals to enhance their exploration activities.


"I think teamwork is one of the big ingredients that's necessary. Then I think we need projects that we believe in." 

"There's been some excellent discoveries made by office interpretation. But overall, I think there has been less field time." 

"I believe that iron ore will be in focus. And I believe that with regards to Pinderi Hills and its silver and platinum, my main aim now is to assist the team."
