Industry outlook

Our valuation of Alkane continues to be underpinned by Tomingley (A$0.57/share). Liquid assets contribute a further A$0.06/share and Boda a further A$0.31/share. As such, we calculate that Alkane’s share price is now more than 100% covered by the value of tangible assets, with up to an additional A$0.59/share available in the form of further exploration success at the Northern Molong Porphyry Project as well as the gold price and the ever-increasing probability of the Roswell underground extension going ahead.
