Alkane Resources Ltd - Alkane Resources has another board member buy shares on-market
Shares in the company have more than tripled this year

Alkane Resources Ltd (ASX:ALK) non-executive director Gavin Smith has purchased $98,685 worth of company shares through on-market trades.

Smith purchased 153,000 shares for 64.5 cents each which more than doubled his overall holding to 295,000 shares.

His purchase follows on from chairman Ian Gandel’s recent purchase of two million shares for $1.07 million.

Shares are up 6% today

Alkane shares are trading up 6.3% today to 67 cents, which is more than triple where they started 2019 at around 20 cents.

The company produces gold from its Tomingley Gold Operations (TGO) in New South Wales and has had recent exploration success within the Tomingley Project.

Most recently, Alkane drilled out significant porphyry-style gold-copper mineralisation at the Boda Prospect within the Northern Molong Porphyry Project in New South Wales.

The single diamond drill hole KSDD003 intersected 502 metres at 0.48 g/t gold and 0.20% copper from 211 metres.

The assay results indicate an increase in thickness and grade of porphyry gold-copper mineralisation at depth and follow-up drilling is being prioritised.

Alkane also owns the construction-ready Dubbo Project in NSW

The Dubbo Project is a large in-ground resource of zirconium, hafnium, niobium, yttrium and rare earth elements.

It is the most advanced poly-metallic project of its kind outside China, making it a potential strategic and independent supply of critical minerals for a range of sustainable technologies and future industries.

It has a potential mine life of 70+ years.
