On Stockhead today, former Kalgoorlie goalkeeper, ultimate survivalist, closet geologist and intrepid reporter Josh Chiat remains upbeat and on the ground in the crazy big smoke of Sydneyville at this year’s spectacular RIU Sydney Resources Roundup.

Curiously, the RIU roundup is an event we don’t sponsor.

But the more Our Man from West Perth files on it, the more it seems exactly the kind of no-holds-barred-all-in-pants-off hoedown that Stockhead likes to get its kit off for.

Rubbing shoulders with the nation’s raddest, maddest and baddest set of investment outliers, Josh reports that “after 40 years of tailwinds” there’s a gaggle of normie investors starting to take a much closer look at gold (and associated metals and rocks) as all the other sensible investments fail to match returns.

In this edition, he corners four ASX goldie juniors with cunning plans afoot.

But first, the day ahead.



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

NextDC (ASX:NXT) – Equity raising.

Sunstone Metals (ASX:STM) – Capital raising.

Pancontinental Energy (ASX:PCL) – Capital raising.

Tempus Resources (ASX:TMR) – Capital raising.

GreenTech Metals (ASX:GRE) – Capital raising.

Optima Technology Group (ASX:OPA) – Capital raising.

Pivotal Metals (ASX:PVT) – Capital raising.

Chalice Mining (ASX:CHN) – Capital raising.

Adveritas (ASX:AV1) – Capital raising.

Magnum Mining (ASX:MGU) – Magnum halted to allow the company to provide clarification on the two announcements made on May 10 with respect to the non-binding MOU with Mitsubishi.

Cellnet Group (ASX:CLT) – Potential control transaction.

Australian Potash (ASX:APC) – Halt called until the federal Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water issues a correcting statement.

You and I’ll read pretty much anything E. Datt and N. McGrath have to say. But both in the same tweet? Thank you Stockhead.


I like to wake up with R. Adams. Sometimes I go to bed with him too. It’s a complex but fulfilling relationship.

I must know what P. Strachan knows. I also want to be P. Strachan.

8VI Holdings (ASX:8VI), topped the count, after the Singapore-based FinEduTech company jumped 44% on no news, and remarkably slim volumes.

Bastion Minerals (ASX:BMO) added excacto 33.3% on an update at the McCombe North Lithium property, a package of three recently-optioned lithium prospects in Canada, which Gregory notes “is where all the cool kids are digging lithium at the moment.”

Finally, Codrus Minerals (ASX:CDR) is back on the winners list, bagging a nigh 38% gain, and still riding the wave of good vibes from news of its high-grade clay-hosted rare earth mineralisation at Karloning last week.
