Fertiliser play Kore Potash (ASX:KP2) ripped higher on no news, and held its gains through the close of trade. KP2 told the ASX shortly after midday (EST) it wasn’t sure what had prompted the spike.

The $5m nanocap operates two potash projects in the Republic of Congo, and today’s gains saw KP2 shares rise to their highest level since December when the stock briefly surged to above 4c.

All five companies that finished on the winner’s list after making announcements today were resources stocks.

Also rising strongly was tungsten company King Island Scheelite (ASX:KIS), which rose sharply after announcing that Swiss investment fund D.A.CH.S Capital announced it had increased its stake to 6.8 per cent.
