Here are the key ASX small cap winners and losers at lunch Monday Sep 17:

The ASX Small Ords was up 3.6 points or 0.13 per cent to 2,834.5 at 12.54pm AEST.

GOING UP

Vintage Energy (ASX:VEN) is celebrating a good debut on the ASX. The newly-listed company listed at a 15 per cent premium to its 20c issue price.

The gas explorer raised $30 million by issuing 150 million shares at 20c per share to capitalise on a potential east coast gas shortage.

It’s buying a large landholding in the Galilee Basin in Queensland through a farm-in with Comet Ridge (ASX:COI).

The company is also in a joint venture with Rawson Oil and Gas (ASX:RAW) to drill the Nangwarry gas prospect in South Australia, and has a gas permit in the onshore Bonaparte Basin in the Northern Territory.

Sex toy wholesaler Delecta (ASX:DLC) has… become a cobalt and copper miner.

And investors greatly enjoyed the news, sending the company up 43 per cent to 1c — its highest mark in over four years.

Late last month Delecta reported reduced revenue and a net loss, but this morning revealed that it had signed an agreement to acquire full interest in a high-grade cobalt-copper project in Nevada, US.

It says the project area is adjacent to ASX-listed New World Cobalt’s (ASX: NWC) claims and Tyranna Resources’ (ASX: TYX) claims.

Terrain Minerals (ASX:TMX) told investors it had received “excellent” metallurgical recovery results, sending the stock up 11 per cent to an intraday high of 0.5c.

The results came from a metallurgical recovery test work program recently undertaken on the mineralisation at its Great Western site.

Argonaut Resources (ASX:ARE) was up 13 per cent to an intraday high of 2.7c after telling investors the management committee of the Torrens Joint Venture has resolved to proceed with stage one of a major drilling program at Torrens in South Australia.

The drilling program is to be the first phase of a multi-phase program that is expected to take 18-24 months and comprise 20-30 deep drill holes.
