A new research report has flagged Orion Minerals’ (ASX:ORN) Prieska copper-zinc project in South Africa as a low risk, build-ready development (reports Stockhead).

Is the boom back? Maybe, is the only correct answer to that provocative question after a remarkable week on global markets triggered by confidence in the success of Covid-19 vaccinations.

Is the boom back? Maybe, is the only correct answer to that provocative question after a remarkable week on global markets triggered by confidence in the success of Covid-19 vaccinations. On one side of the returning-boom debate was the evidence of commodity markets where iron ore and copper hit seven-year price highs and gold shrugged off last week’s price correction to move back above the $US1800 an ounce mark.

The market finally looks to be buying in to the idea that Sandfire’s A$167 million acquisition of Botswana-focussed MOD Resources last year was as much about exploration upside as it was about MOD’s advanced T3 Motheo copper-silver development project (writes Barry FitzGerald on MiningNews).

Drilling at New World’s Antler deposit indicates that not only does high-grade copper mineralisation go down a long way, it seems to improve as it does (reports Stockhead).

It hasn’t taken long for Neil Biddle to get some pep into the share price of the formerly sleepy Greenvale Mining (GRV). Greenvale got a mention here back on September 10 when it was a 4.2c stock. It has since marched to 10.5c for a market cap of $35 million. There are two forces at work. There are those punters getting behind Biddle after following him at Pilbara Minerals (PLS), which he turned from a stock going nowhere to one of the biggest hard rock lithium-tantalum producers in the world.
