It doesn’t get much better for investors in Australian resources as surging global demand drives prices to multi-year highs with the promise of more to come as confidence rises in vaccines taming the spread of Covid-19.

It doesn’t get much better for investors in Australian resources as surging global demand drives prices to multi-year highs with the promise of more to come as confidence rises in vaccines taming the spread of Covid-19. Dr Copper, the metal used in almost everything and a widely quoted prophet of future economic growth, is leading the way, rising to a nine-year high of $US3.77 a pound. Platinum, the forgotten precious metal, is trading at a six year high of $US1215 an ounce. Most other commodities, bar gold, are also trading at multi-year highs, especially battery metals.

And as the uranium sector begins to glow amid bullish price forecasts, Boss moves to finance production restart at South Australian project

Copper has been a star performer since mid-2020 in response to COVID production hits in Latin America, global stimulus, and the global decarbonisation push gathering momentum. The red metal averaged all of $US2.50/lb in the first (calendar) six months of 2020 and is now sitting pretty at $US3.54/lb.

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. While their direct shipping ore projects may be small and involve the costly process of trucking product vast distances to the port of Geraldton, each is confident of a healthy margin at prevailing iron ore prices and currency exchanges.

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.
