    to withstand the drought

    xtra supplies @ $900 a megalite(1m litres) are being stockpiled for future use as against the ruling price of $1350

    Strong cash flows would continue from licence fees and mgmt charges paid by existing lot holders

    of $106.5m

    Executive director Mr Sol Rabinowicz said revenue levels
    would grow even if the market turned flat
