Perth broker Hartleys has adjusted its valuation of base metal developer Venturex Resources (ASX: VXR) following the COVID-19-induced share market collapse, but believes the likelihood of imminent Government approvals justifies a Speculative Buy recommendation for the stock once the market recovers. Hartleys resource analyst Paul Howard says the WA Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) has concluded its assessment of Venturex’s Sulphur Springs copper-zinc project and proceeded to consultation with the company on the implementation conditions.

Volatility was the theme of last week’s edition of Prospector’s Diary, and boy did we all learn a lot about what that means this week

Volatility was the theme of last week’s edition of Prospector’s Diary, and boy did we all learn a lot about what that means this week, leading to the question of what’s next.

Plus, market’s brutal response to Red 5’s production downgrade ignores the bigger game

It is a good time to be boldly looking beyond the current vapourisation of equity values in response to the coronavirus pandemic to secure what with time, will (hopefully) be seen as astute pick-ups. Mind you, you’ve got to have the readies to do it. That’s not a problem for Andrew “Twiggy” Forrest. Because iron ore has managed to hold at elevated levels, and because China is reportedly getting back to work while the Western world goes in to quarantine, he is in line to collect a $1.58 billion annual dividend cheque for the 2020FY from Fortescue Metals (ASX:FMG).

If you ever wondered what volatile means, you’ll soon know because over the next few months, and perhaps for the rest of 2020, financial markets will be on a wild ride, up one day, down the next.

Another round of outstanding drilling results fires up De Grey and its leading shareholder DGO Gold while Kairos reminds investors it has a gold project just down the road

The Pilbara Craton’s ranking as a gold province has long suffered in comparisons with the Yilgarn down south. Its 8 million-ounce gold endowment compared with the Yilgarn’s 200Moz says as much, even if the Pilbara has all the same ingredients that has made the Yilgarn one of the world’s great gold regions.
