Joint venture partners Coda Minerals and Torrens Mining have uncovered intense iron oxide-copper gold (IOCG) alteration with copper-sulphide mineralisation

intense iron oxide-copper gold (IOCG) alteration with copper-sulphide mineralisation while drilling at the Emmie Bluff Deeps target within the Elizabeth Creek copper project in South Australia (reports Small Caps). The first deep diamond hole drilled at the target encountered a sequence of approximately 200m of intensely haematitic and altered sediments and granites, including 50m of moderate-to-intense copper-sulphide mineralisation consisting of chalcocite, chalcopyrite and bornite.

Another whiff of inflation and hint of rising interest rates stirred financial markets this week, along with a warning of greater risks ahead from two big name investors (and a long-dead economist).

Larry Fink and Jeremy Grantham sang from the same gloomy hymn sheet, which is a favorite of grumpy old men who have seen countless market cycles -- and so too would Adam Smith, if he had not died 231 years ago. Fink is the key man in the threesome because he runs BlackRock, the world’s biggest fund manager. He warned that stimulus spending would create an inflation spike which would be a “pretty big shock” for most people, especially novice investors who have little concept of the value-corroding nature of inflation.

With a price moving back towards US$20,000 a tonne, nickel has shrugged off the worst of a 20% crash in February and become an investment opportunity where you can follow the money – and “the man” (reports Tim Treadgold on Small Caps).

In the case of nickel, a high value metal ideal for small companies, the man happens to be one of Australia’s richest, the iron ore billionaire, Andrew Forrest, also known as Twiggy. Before the Perth-based entrepreneur made his fortune through the outrageous success of Fortescue Metals Group (ASX: FMG), Forrest was a true believer in nickel, though he failed to make a permanent mark with his Anaconda Nickel.

Greenvale Mining is gearing up to drill its “mighty” Georgina iron oxide-copper-gold project in the Northern Territory (reports MiningNews).

It comes days after BHP formally entered the search for copper in the NT via a A$22 million farm-in and joint venture with Encounter Resources over the Elliott project, northwest of Tennant Creek. Greenvale's Georgina project is east of Tennant Creek. The project comprises seven granted tenements and two under application, covering 4475sq.km.

The Pilbara Minerals founder plans to do it all again. And Liontown’s new MD is embarking on a roadshow of his own to explain the key points of difference around his company’s big WA lithium project.

It is almost six years since Neil Biddle hit the Eastern States on a roadshow for a then-obscure little thing called Pilbara Minerals. Pilbara (PLS) was trading at 5c a share at the time for a market cap of $32 million and it has to be said that Biddle got a lot of confused looks from investors at the June 2015 investor lunches in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. Pegmatites? Spodumene? Lithium? Electric vehicle revolution? What was he on about? Pass the bottle.

Copper up. Gold up. It’s an unusual double-barreled event because rising copper is a pointer to strong future economic activity, while gold is a safe haven for uncertain times, so when both rise at the same time it makes for tricky forecasting.

Copper up. Gold up. It’s an unusual double-barreled event because rising copper is a pointer to strong future economic activity, while gold is a safe haven for uncertain times, so when both rise at the same time it makes for tricky forecasting. Layer on top of those two key commodities moving in tandem with rising interest rates and a whiff of inflation, and it is doubtful that there has ever been a more complex brew of conflicting signals.

Plus, Legend and Breaker show why patience can be a key ingredient in exploration and impending float of Black Canyon to give manganese-hungry investors another option.

Inca Minerals (ICG) must be feeling like a little boy pushing a wheelbarrow – it’s all of ahead the company. In a short time frame time too, with game-changing potential to boot, something it could be argued is not yet reflected in the group’s $50m market cap (12.5c) a share. First up, there’s the excitement around the company’s exposure to the East Tennant region of the Northern Territory. It’s where government-funded drilling has confirmed the frontier region’s potential to host large-scale iron oxide copper gold deposits.

Takeover time moved a step closer this week as the “almost everything boom” stretched out to new heights with Fitch Ratings warning that the mining sector is likely to shift from a buyer’s to a seller’s market over the next 12-to-18 months.

Takeover time moved a step closer this week as the “almost everything boom” stretched out to new heights with Fitch Ratings warning that the mining sector is likely to shift from a buyer’s to a seller’s market over the next 12-to-18 months. The alert from Fitch, a leading credit rating agency, recognises the challenge of trying to buy high-priced individual assets and the need for bidders to make a full takeover for the parent company.
