With a share price of almost $9 and a market cap of more than $3 billion, Chalice Mining is without doubt the clear winner among resources investors over the 15 months since its game-changing discovery at Julimar.

Chalice managing director Alex Dorsch explains how the company plans to carry the project forward while justifying its incredible market valuation.
