Gold Road also reached another milestone in the same week by becoming the Australian Securities Exchange’s newest $1 billion company.

Shares needed to reach $1.14 for the company to reach a $1 billion market capitalisation and shares reached beyond that amount, trading up to $1.18 – a new high for the company.

At the time, Gold Road’s managing director Duncan Gibbs said: “This is a tremendous milestone given that the Gold Road team discovered the world-class ore body less than six years ago.”
