ASX Round-Up: Paladin, Independence Group and Alumina Enjoy Gains

The Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) closed at 5,625.9 points today, up 1.5 points from the previous session. Investors had been hoping for growth throughout August, but the month ended relatively flat, according to The Sydney Morning Herald.
