Alkane Resources (ASX: ALK)
Ian Chalmers, Technical Director
Alkane is a gold miner and explorer in central New South Wales with an exciting portfolio of projects in the production, development and exploration phases.
At its Tomingley project, Alkane mined 70,000 ounces of gold last financial year at a production cost of around A$1,300/oz
On site is a processing plant with a capacity of 1Mtpa and an approval for expansion of up to 1.75Mtpa.
Alkane is planning on establishing an underground mine at its Roswell resource soon. Combined with its San Antonio resource, Rowswell hosts 1.31 Moz of gold.
The company is also expanding studies of its initial Boda Resource of 10.1 Moz of gold and its initial Kaiser resources of 4.7 Moz of gold.
Since the price of gold started to rise in 2019, Alkane’s share price has gone up by 150 per cent, taking its market capitalisation to approximately $350 million.
Sky Metals (ASX: SKY)
Oliver Davies, CEO
Sky Metals is developing a brownfields tin project in the central-west of New South Wales.
At its Tallebung project, Sky has a mineral resource estimate of 15.6Mt @ 0.15% Tin for 23,000 tonnes of contained Tin across a shallow deposit with a low strip ratio.
It has an exploration target of up to 32Mt @ 0.14 – 0.17% tin.
Sky has also adopted game-changing TOMRA ore sorting technology that separates waste from mineralised ore before processing.
