Voltaic Strategic Resources (ASX:VSR) opens today some 188% from where it was a session previous.

Just six days after it got the drills spinning at its Ti Tree project in WA, the company says it has completed its first-pass exploration and things are looking very, very nice indeed.

Several meaty (up to ~60m thick) pegmatite bodies have been intercepted  from surface and all targets remain open at depth.

The company says that confirmation of pegmatite continuity at depth significantly bolsters the Project’s prospectivity where >300 pegmatites have been mapped and <10% of the tenure explored to date.

Golden market darling Besra Gold (ASX:BEZ) jumped 89% on a binding gold purchase agreement for up to US$300 million with major shareholder Quantum Metal Recovery.

The agreement provides up to a US$300m deposit, to be paid over 30 months, against future gold production ounces, enabling Besra to fully fund production at its Bau gold project and the appraisal of other deposits within the Bau goldfield corridor.

Takeover target Chesser Resources (ASX:CHZ) climbed 64% on news of a binding proposal from TSX listed Fortuna Silver that will see Fortuna acquire 100% of the company.

Under the proposal Chesser shareholders will receive consideration of 0.0248 Fortuna shares per Chesser share, representing an implied value of $0.142 per Chesser share. At the close CHZ was sitting at $0.120 per share.
