Good morning everyone, and welcome to 11 April, 2024 – an important date in the history of military happenings for a variety of nations around the globe.

It was on this day in 1241 that the Battle of Mohi took place, which saw Mongol leaders Batu and Subedei defeat Hungarian King Béla IV in a major battle during the Mongolian invasion of Hungary, which ended with about 30,000 Hungarians dead… which was, at the time, pretty much all of them.

On this day in 1841 1814, Napolean Bonaparte was exiled to Elba, after he attempted to conquer the entire world and – *ahem* – came up a little short.

And on this day in 1898, Spain declared war on the United States, which didn’t go well for Spain, as it was on this day in 1899 that the Treaty of Paris was ratified, and Spain ceded Puerto Rico to ‘Murica.

On an far more peaceful note, I am delighted to inform you that the Stockhead team has been beavering away tirelessly, to bring you some excellent content to peruse before the market gets going today.

That includes … stuff. I’m not sure. Something about a rare earths company that’s massively undervalued, probably. And Badman squeezed his eyes shut really tight and made some lithium news. Little battler that he is.

Plus, I have once again dedicated countless nanoseconds of my fleeting existence to writing down a series of numbers and facts, just so you can look smart when the market opens later this morning.

You’re welcome.

Yesterday’s Small Cap Winners included:

Out in front Thursday was Forrestania Resources (ASX:FRS), which revealed that it’s been poring over old exploration and digging date, and had boots on the ground on-site, in its search for gold at the Ada Ann and Bonnie Vale North prospects, just north of Coolgardie, WA.

And Waratah’s Spur is also hosted in “equivalent Late Ordovician-aged geology” within the Molong Belt of mineralisation.

Prospect Resources (ASX:PSC) has executed an agreement that will see Orpheus Minerals (ASX:ORP) exiting from its exploration projects in Zambia, and pay $1.0 million in fully paid PSC shares as partial reimbursement of prior exploration expenditure, along with three options to acquire ordinary PSC shares for every four shares issued, at 15 cents per share, expiring three years after issue.
