On Stockhead today, Tesla is selling more cars than ever.

The world’s largest EV manufacturer, has once again shattered expectations with its delivery of a record 466,140 cars worldwide between the months of April and June, exceeding estimates by Wall Street analysts.

That’s a lot of cars, and as we all know, electric vehicles need a bucketload of minerals – not just lithium – to help power them.

These are the ASX stocks Elon is interested in.

But first, the day ahead.



The following stocks went into trading halts Monday and are expected out in the coming days:

Dreadnought Resources (ASX:DRE) – Resource upgrade at the Mangaroon Rare Earths project.

GTI Energy (ASX:GTR) – Maiden uranium resource estimate at the Lo Herma project, Wyoming.

Huge day for the little guys.

But there’s one standout mover well worth mentioning again, as it’s risen another 200% since lunchtime Monday:

Lumos Diagnostics (ASX:LDX): +545%. Stupendous.

As reported by Gregor Stronners on Monday arvo:

“Lumos has received clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market its FebriDx rapid, point-of-care test in the United States, allowing the company to roll out its diagnostic tester thingy that lets doctors very quickly figure out what’s happening to someone in acute respiratory distress.

“FebriDx is designed to be used as an aid in the diagnosis of bacterial acute respiratory infection and differentiation from non-bacterial etiology.

“In plain English: if someone’s not breathing too good, the test can tell whether it’s a bacterial problem (which can be treated with antibiotics) or a virus (which cannot), vastly speeding up treatment times without an unnecessary dose of over-prescribed antibiotic treatment.”

Also worth a Monday mention:

Kairos Minerals (ASX:KAI): +74% off the back of its recent successful completion of a $3.96 million strategic placement to Global Lithium Resources (ASX:GL1).

Asra Minerals (ASX:ASR): +57% on news of final assay results from 74 RC drillholes at Yttria, which confirm a heavy-REE dominant regolith-hosted deposit over the first 2.5km strike length at Mt Stirling. Also, extensive areas are yet to be drill tested along a further 20km strike.

Atomo Diagnostics (ASX:AT1) : +55% on nothing more than a notice of a change of interests of a substantial holder. Make of that what you will here.

Gold Mountain (ASX:GMN): +33% on no fresh news since announcing it’s acquiring some Brazilian lithium tenements a couple of weeks ago.

• Kuniko (ASX:KNI): + 35% on news that carmaker Stellantis has become a major shareholder.
