YESTERDAY’S BIGGEST SMALL CAP WINNERS

So much is in a name, and –  Zinc of Ireland (ASX:ZMI)tells a story involving both Ireland and zinc… and while zinc isn’t quite as sexy as lithium, prices certainly have been running hot.

ZMI rocketed on no discernable news other than what it says is “arguably one of the most prospective exploration land packages for high-grade, large tonnage, zinc-lead deposits in the world”.

Still in the digging for stuff space, Iceni Gold (ASX:ICL) hit solid gold at Everleigh inside its 14 Mile Well project at Laverton in WA, telling the market of a broad zone of structural disruption with gold observed at a depth of 224.6 metres.

Assay results are due at the end of the second quarter, with shares up well over 21% in late arvo trade.

Hard working Ozaurum Resources (ASX:OZM)has told the ASX in one of the better, less ambivalent ASX announcements of 2022 – “Gold discovery!”

And a good one – 1.31g/t over 56m (including 18m @ 2.07g/t) at the ‘Mulgabbie North’ project, next door to Northern Star’s (ASX:NST) tier 1 Carosue Dam operations in WA.

The results, which include significant hits from three holes spaced 100m apart, come from a recently launched 7,500m reverse circulation (RC) drilling campaign. It’s early days, but this virgin discovery at the so-called ‘Demag Zone’ remains ‘open’ all over the joint, OZM says.
