The Investing News Network looks at three upcoming initial public offerings on the ASX that resource investors should keep an eye out for this fall.

The Australia Securities Exchange (ASX), which has a total market capitalization of about AU$2 trillion, continues to attract the attention from resource investors around the world.

More than 2,200 companies are listed on the Sydney-based stock exchange, with nearly 900 included in the basic materials and energy sectors. Despite what many may think, Australian companies are not the only ones that join the exchange every year — more than 100 foreign companies are listed as well.

In 2018, the ASX was among the top five exchanges globally for the number of new listings — 132 companies were listed during the 12 month period, with the total capital raised in initial public offerings (IPOs) reaching AU$8.5 billion.

The top resource listings last year were Viva Energy (ASX:VEA), which was the largest IPO on the ASX with a capital raising of AU$2.65 billion; Coronado Global Resources (ASX:CRN), which is focused on metallurgical coal; Perth-based Jupiter Mines (ASX:JMS), which operates the Tshipi manganese mine; and Nickel Mines (ASX:NIC), which has interests in the Hengjaya and Ranger nickel projects.

Lake Resources NL Quarterly Activities Report

Sydney, Australia (ABN Newswire) – Lake Resources NL (ASX:LKE) (FRA:LK1) (OTCMKTS:LLKKF) is a lithium developer utilising clean, direct extraction technology for the development of high purity lithium products with significant ESG benefits from its flagship Kachi Project (4.4mt LCE resource), and three other lithium brine projects in Argentina. No mining is involved in the brine processing.

Lake owns over 220,000 hectares (0.5 million acres) of leases in a prime location within the Lithium Triangle, alongside all 5 major lithium producers.

A key difference in Lake’s development plan to lithium production is to use an efficient direct lithium extraction method (DLE) from our technology partner, Lilac Solutions Inc. This enables Lake Resources to be a cost competitive supplier of high-purity lithium carbonate with a low carbon (CO2) footprint, low water use and low land use – strong Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) benefits.

How to Access Medical Cannabis in Australia

Recreational cannabis remains out of reach in Australia, but the country legalised medical cannabis in 2016, opening up access to the cannabis market for both Australians and investors alike.

Cannabis in Australia is used to treat a myriad of conditions, from epilepsy to neuropathic pain, but federal legislation has a strict hold on the distribution of cannabis in the country.

Patients can only receive medicinal cannabis products via a specialist and then may have to wait up to a month for government approval. However, there are signs that the limits to access are slowly lessening, including the approval of over-the-counter cannabidiol (CBD) products and new breakthroughs in government-sponsored medical cannabis research.

In exceptional market conditions, Rio Tinto achieves record financial results and declares total interim dividend of 561 US cents per share, 75% of underlying earnings

Rio Tinto Chief Executive Jakob Stausholm said “Government stimulus in response to ongoing COVID-19 pressures has driven strong demand for our products at a time of constrained supply resulting in a significant spike in most prices. We focused on safely running our world-class assets and supplying products to our customers. This enabled us, despite operational challenges, to deliver record financial results with free cash flow of $10.2 billion and underlying earnings of $12.2 billion, after taxes and government royalties of $7.3 billion. We are further strengthening the portfolio with our commitment to fund the high-quality Jadar lithium project, which signals our large-scale entry into the fast-growing battery materials market. We will pay an interim dividend of 561 US cents per share, representing 75% of underlying earnings.

“We are making progress on our four priorities, identifying opportunities for operational improvement, advancing our ESG agenda, taking important investment decisions and stepping up our external engagement. We are making real and lasting changes to the way we engage, interact and operate and are committed to ensuring that we have strong and positive relationships wherever we do business. We have identified what we need to do to make Rio Tinto a better company for the long term, with the right teams in place to unleash our full potential.”
