Virus 1. Rest of the World 0. That’s the score on the first of two mega-issues which drove markets lower this week with virus gloom magnified by the uncertainty ahead of Tuesday’s U.S. Presidential election.

Virus 1. Rest of the World 0. That’s the score on the first of two mega-issues which drove markets lower this week with virus gloom magnified by the uncertainty ahead of Tuesday’s U.S. Presidential election. Australia, which has largely dodged the latest outbreak of Covid-19 that is restricting mobility in Europe and the U.S., did not evade the effects of international market turmoil, but the sell-off here was less severe and more of a correction than a crash.

After a bumper year, the Goldfields air is thick with anticipation, if not planes. A “potential show-stopper” from Chalice and Greatland on finding gold in the Pilbara among the must-sees

Next week’s Diggers & Dealers bash beneath Kalgoorlie’s big blue sky will be a more sedate affair than usual. That’s a pity because there is lots for the annual gathering of mining and finance-types to celebrate. The Eastern State’s bloc of regular attendees at the three-day conference is trapped back home because of COVID-19, so it is case of them putting out the rubbish and feeding the cat rather than being free to enjoy a Kalgoorlie kebab at 3am.

There is a bunch of hopefuls on the ASX looking to become producers of high purity alumina (HPA), which is set to enjoy super-charged growth in demand for its use in LED lighting and as a heat separator in lithium-ion batteries. But it is FYI’s planned $198m integrated project in WA – it envisages the Cadoux kaolin mine 220km north-east of Perth supplying a HPA refinery at Kwinana – that has got the interest up of the king of metal-grade and chemical-grade alumina production, Alcoa. As far as project endorsements go, FYI could not have hoped for a better one.

Investors are clearly anticipating good news from Chalice Gold Mines, sending its stock up 11 per cent yesterday to an all-time high before the company called a trading halt (reports The West Australian). The explorer, chaired by Tim Goyder, pictured, has been one of WA’s market darlings this year since its March unveiling of a curious discovery at its Julimar project, just 70km north-east of Perth. Chalice hit 19m at 8.4g/t palladium, 2.6 per cent nickel and one per cent copper in its first hole at Julimar with subsequent drilling results continuing to impress.
