Shares of Alchemy Resources Limited (ASX:ALY) have zoomed up by over 45% to AU$0.029 after the company announced a major step ahead in activities related to its fully owned Karonie Lithium and Gold Project.
One of the emerging players in the hot battery market, Alchemy Resources on 30 September 2022 announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Goldtribe Corporation Pty Ltd (Goldtribe), has won a ballot for a key licence application (E28/3207) related to the aforementioned project.
The location of the new licence is 120 km to the east of Kalgoorlie, next to Global Lithium (ASX:GL1) to the east and Breaker Resources (ASX:BRB) to the north.
Major ballot win for Alchemy resources
For securing the much-desired licence in this highly prospective area, Goldtribe’s application had to compete with many other interested contenders. Consequently, a ballot had to be conducted by the Kalgoorlie Mining Warden to decide priority to the ground. Fortunately for Alchemy Resources Limited, the ballot saw Goldtribe being drawn first.
