Leading vertically integrated and conflict-free provider of high performance tantalum metallurgical and powder products to the electronics, aerospace, automotive, chemical manufacturing and other industries.

About Us

Global Advanced Metals was formed after our tantalum operations were separated from the then Talison Minerals to create a new and distinct company focused specifically on metals for the future. At that time our key assets were the Wodgina tantalum mine and the Greenbushes tantalum mine and concentrating plant, both in Western Australia. Together, these two operations represented one of the world's largest resources of tantalum.

In 2011, we purchased the US-based Cabot Supermetals business, which turns tantalum ores and concentrates into a range of metallurgical products and different grades of capacitor powders.

As a result of this acquisition we added the Boyertown processing plant, the Aizu processing plant in Japan, and research and development facilities in both Boyertown and Aizu to our existing mining and concentrating operations. We also have corporate offices located in Waltham, Massachusetts USA, Tokyo, Japan and Perth, Australia.

Our long-term vision is to build a vertically integrated, global business that can supply all our customers needs for tantalum products as well as other advanced metals. We will continue to invest in the research and development focused on new tantalum products to ensure continuing use of this material by future-focused industries.

Our most important commitment is to ensure that at all times we are a responsible tantalum supplier by delivering conflict free products into the global supply chain.
