On Stockhead today, Bev reckons this local oil and gas name’s been running on silent and is ready to fire all torpedoes.

Nadine makes the case for The Small Cap as ETF.

Em’s been up all week tracking an odd bunch of local IPOs, and when even Chief Sustainability Officers admit to having trust issues with  carbon credits, Jess is always there to say: Hey. Fellas, c’mon.

Riedel Resources (ASX:RIE) a standout after it dropped news which sent its share price into orbit, up around +100%  before settling down to a still-decent +50% at the close.

It all went bonkers there for a while, though, after Riedel revealed the first assays from its diamond drill program from Kingman Gold Project, USA – and the news is good.

Multiple high-grade gold results seen in shallow holes have confirmed earlier RC drilling results, and that Reidel is sitting on a chunky gold deposit, within arm’s reach of surface.

Magmatic Resources (ASX:MAG), surged late in trade to finish the day more than 30% up.
