Interested in TSX mining stocks also listed on the ASX? We’ve rounded up a list of the top dual-listed mining companies.

As the mining industry continues to flourish, investors may be interested in some of the top TSX mining stocks also listed on the ASX.

Listing on both the TSX and ASX has been gaining in popularity as of late thanks to companies that wish to reach more investors while having trading variation on two separate markets.

Read on for a breakdown of why companies dual list and the top TSX mining stocks that are also available on the ASX.

TSX mining stocks also listed on the ASX: Why companies dual list

As previously mentioned, Australian companies tend to dual list on both the ASX and the TSX in order to cast a wider net and increase the number of investors they can reach. By gaining exposure to more than just one market, Australian miners stand a greater chance of obtaining financing and raising the capital needed to fund the exploration of their assets on a grander scale.

According to BDO Australia, often times it is the belief of Australian mining companies that investors who play on the TSX tend to have a greater grasp on how resource companies operate and the best ways to invest in them. This school of thought may stem from the fact that between the Australian market and the Toronto market, the TSX is more focused on companies in the resource space.

There is, of course, a second worthwhile reason that leads Australian companies to seek out the TSX — this springs from the knowledge that these companies will be operating on not one, but two markets, each with its one unique way of trading and operating.

“Spreading an organisation’s fundraising activities across two economically distinct markets may reduce an organisation’s exposure to macroeconomic factors, factors that may affect ongoing capital raising ability. This allows dual listed entities to turn to different markets at different times depending on the prevailing economic conditions of either market,” says BDO Australia.

Another intriguing component of listing on more than one exchange is that miners can take advantage of the price difference that exists between two markets. When investors know that they can purchase a stock or security on one market and sell it on another — a strategy known as arbitrage — there is a higher possibility that a dual-listed company that can provide this way of trading could be seen as more appealing option than one that cannot.

Lastly, dual listed companies often times benefit from increased liquidity. Since trading on two specific markets will generally attract a greater number of investors, Australian miner’s are of the mind that the demand in their stock will increase and in turn so will the liquidity of those stocks. According to Investopedia, “Along with the increased liquidity and choice, the bid-ask spread on the stock tends to decrease, which makes it easier for investors to buy and sell the security in the market at any time.”

The precious metals miner continued expanding its presence within the mining space when it achieved commercial production at Sissingué in 2018, followed by the development of its third asset, the Yaouré gold mine, also located in the Côte d’Ivoire, in 2019.
