In a market swamped with investors looking for somewhere positive to empty their pockets, GreenTech Metals (ASX:GRE) was in the right place at the right time with some very positive news and ended the day up by around 200%.

The jump was due to assay results from its Austin prospect, part of the greater Whundo Cu-Zn project in WA, where the company has bored into a copper dominant mineralised horizon with significantly increased thickness and grades up to 5.4% Cu.

The assay results have also returned elevated gold and cobalt intercepts.

GreenTech says the new assays “indicate a threefold thickening of the Austin mineralised zone which is consistent with Austin being a separate mineralising event to the overlying Whundo (East) resource”.

Vanadium Resources (ASX:VR8) enjoyed a pump after a double-barrel set of announcements, including news of a strategic placement and offtake MOU.

VR8 says it’s entered into an agreement with a wholly owned subsidiary of Zhejiang Lygend Investment in relation to a strategic investment by Matrix of $5.91 million.

Vanadium Resources has also granted Matrix exclusivity for a period of four months to negotiate and enter into an offtake for vanadium products arising from the Steelpoortdrift Vanadium Mine and Concentrator and the Tweefontein Vanadium Salt Roast Leach Plant.

VR8 was up 17.3% in very testing market conditions.
