For more than a millennium the Falun copper mine in Sweden played a significant role in meeting the copper needs of continental Europe (reports Stockhead). The old mine — now a museum — is thought to have produced as much as two-thirds of European copper needs in medieval times. Falun is said to have produced 500,000 tonnes of zinc at 5%, 400,000 tonnes of copper at 4%, 160,000 tonnes of lead at 2%, 380,000 tonnes of silver at 35 grams per tonne and 5 tonnes of gold at 4g/t over its life.

Buying into one of the best metals discoveries in recent times – Chalice’s Julimar near Perth – has just got a lot cheaper, even though its story has just got a lot better, such are the joys of investing in the resources space during periods of metal price volatility. Chalice (CHN) was off 13% in Thursday’s market to $4.04. Nothing particularly wrong with that given $4.04 compares with a pre-Julimar discovery 52-week low of 14.5c. But it is down from a recent high of $4.92.

A surging iron ore price is set to give birth to two new WA junior exporters of the steel-making commodity within days (reports The West Australian).

A surging iron ore price is set to give birth to two new WA junior exporters of the steel-making commodity within days (reports The West Australian). GWR Group and Fenix Resources have opportunistically seized on a nine-year high iron ore price of around $US170/t to bring their respective projects into production.

Among the raft of ASX-listed uranium players that have enjoyed a long-awaited lift in investor sentiment in recent months, Boss Energy looks a stand-out (reports The West Australian).

Among the raft of ASX-listed uranium players that have enjoyed a long-awaited lift in investor sentiment in recent months, Boss Energy looks a stand-out (reports The West Australian). The uranium price has been in the doldrums since the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan in 2011. But last year the market began to re-awaken to nuclear’s potential as a zero-emissions energy source that can also provide baseload power — and the price of yellowcake began to tick up.

Separating reality from speculative share trading has probably never been harder but if you look through the dust stirred up by day-traders and this week’s stock market correction you will see the start of the world’s seventh great resources boom.

Separating reality from speculative share trading has probably never been harder but if you look through the dust stirred up by day-traders and this week’s stock market correction you will see the start of the world’s seventh great resources boom.
