Here are the key ASX small cap winners and losers at lunch Monday January 14:

The ASX Small Ords was up 5.8 points or 0.23 per cent to 2,507.1 at 12.30pm AEST.

GOING UP

Valor Resources (ASX:VAL) has scored mining heavyweight Rio Tinto as its partner for the Berenguela copper, silver and manganese project in Peru.

Investors loved the news, trading the hell out of the Perth-based minnow’s shares, and driving the price up 67 per cent to an intra-day high of 0.5c.

Flinders Mines’ (ASX:FMS) shares have rallied nearly 26 per cent this morning to an intra-day high of 3.4c as shareholders ramp up the fight to stop the explorer’s delisting from going ahead.

In mid-December iron ore hopeful Flinders revealed that it wanted to delist, and in preparation for that would buy shares back using a loan from its biggest shareholder, TIO (NZ) Ltd, which owns 55.6 per cent.

The Takeovers Panel began looking into the matter last Thursday after shareholders raised concerns that the proposed deal would allow TIO NZ to gain further control of Flinders and would be a breach of the Corporations Act.

GOIN DOWN

Graphite hopeful Peninsula Mines has announced that managing director Jon Dugdale and director Martin Pyle “would retire effective immediately”.

Replacements have already been found, but that didn’t placate investors which sent then company’s share price down almost 17 per cent to 0.5c per share by midday.
