The Australian market extended last week’s rally into this week with the key index closing the session 1.02% higher, boosted by a surge in materials and technology stocks.

Gold Road Resources (ASX:GOR) also lifted just over 5% today. Other stocks that investors bought into today included Mineral Resources (ASX:MIN), with shares in the mining services giant soaring to a fresh record high of $74.20 today during the session.

Investors sharply sold out of Liontown Resources (ASX:LTR) today despite the company announcing it has executed a letter of award with Zenith Energy (ASX:ZEN), one of Australia’s leading independent power producers, to supply electricity to its Kathleen Valley Lithium project in Western Australia for a 15-year period.
