Broken exhaust mount

I had a low-speed off late last season which bent my rear subframe and broke the exhaust mount which bolts to the subframe (see pics).

I would like to have it welded, but I am not sure what material this is. It is slightly magnetic, but this wasn't detectable with my "parts retriever" magnet - only a rare-earth one. If anyone recognizes the material or manufacturer, I would love to know. Otherwise, I'll need to do the "spark test," I guess.

(I wire-brushed around the broken weld a bit. The heat-shield mount is just to show what a non-broken weld looks like.)

Take it to a weld shop, they can determine the material. Probably a type of stainless steel grade with a little steel in it that is why it's somewhat magnetic but will not rust like steel.

Higher grade stainless will have points of magnetism at bends, otherwise little if any.

Thanks for the input - I'll take it to a shop and let them figure it out.
