Topping the winners list on Friday was Cyclone Metals (ASX:CLE)  after announcing a soil sampling program at its Macraes South project in New Zealand’s Otago province has generated highly prospective drill targets over multiple lodes.

The program has returned strong coherent and continuous geochemical responses over gold lode zones at Macraes South, with anomalous responses up to 350m wide.

CLE said potentially around five mineralised lodes have been identified for testing at the Swamy Hill prospect and an application for an extension of term has been lodged for another drilling program to test the defined anomalies if an access agreement is signed with the landowners.

Also on the winners list – Grand Gulf Energy (ASX:GGE)after an independent review confirmed significant helium flow potential at Jesse-1A well, part of the 10.6bcf Red Helium project in Utah.
