Closing Bell is Stockhead’s daily recap of the ASX’s biggest movers – the winners and losers alike.

Data is taken at the market close – at 4.10pm AEDT.

Stocks highlighted in yellow rose (or fell) after making announcements during intraday trade.


Nanocap minerals technology company Austpac Resources (ASX:APG) led the pack after ripping higher on no news.

The company answered an ASX price query shortly after 3pm EST, and said it wasn’t aware of any information that would warrant such a move.

Aston Minerals (ASX:ASO) — flagged by resources luminary Tolga Kumova as a “potential life-changer” when he spoke with Stockhead in January — closed around 70pc higher after scoring a nice gold hit at its Edleston project in Ontario, Canada.

And edtech play Janison Education (ASX:JAN) also bounced, after announcing it’s been accredited by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) as sole provider of the PISA for Schools assessment in the Australian market.
