ASX Resource IPOs for Investors to Watch in 2021

What ASX resource IPOs should investors know about this year? Here’s a look at the companies that will debut in 2021.

The resource space faced hurdles in 2020 on the back of the COVID-19 pandemic, but companies continued to move forward with developments, putting hopes on an economic rebound this year.

Prices for commodities have been on an upward trend, particularly for base and precious metals, and the outlook for the Australian mining sector is bright.

In total, the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) saw 113 initial public offerings (IPOs) last year — 27 of the new listings were included in the materials sector.

Looking at ASX, so far this year it has welcomed three resource companies: Australian Gold and Copper (ASX:AGC), Mamba Exploration (ASX:M24) and Torrens Mining (ASX:TRN).

The first company is focused on the Lachlan Fold Belt in New South Wales, while the second will initially put all its efforts on the Darling Range, Calyerup Creek, Ashburton and Kimberly projects; for its part, Torrens has all its efforts on their Mt Piper gold project in Central Victoria.

But what are the upcoming ASX resource IPOs that investors should keep an eye out for? Here the Investing News Network looks at the upcoming listings under the materials sector in 2021. Data was up to date as of January 26, 2021, with companies listed in alphabetical order.
