Industry outlook

In July Alkane established an exploration target within 8km of the Tomingley Gold Mine ranging from 860,000oz Au to 1,680,000oz Au. With successful resource drilling of this exploration target, followed by positive feasibility studies, this latest discovery could extend the life of the gold operations at Tomingley beyond 2022. During H119, Alkane produced 48,969oz Au from Tomingley at an AISC of A$947/oz.
