Today on Stockhead, We meet the one real threat to the lithium battery futuresodium ion – it’s cheaper, safer, longer lasting, and better in cold temps than lithium-ion, but

And we chat with Bell Direct’s Grady Wulff on why whatever just happened during Black Friday through Cyber Monday was so critical to ASX retailers.

But first, to markets!

Still on a roll after a fabulous week, last week is Sunshine Metals (ASX:SHN).

The $24 million micro cap may have struck paydirt in a gold and copper rich feeder zone to its 2.3Mt zinc, gold, copper, lead and silver VMS resource at the Liontown deposit of the Ravenswood Consolidated Project in North Queensland.

Another 11 holes have already been drilled to target these feeder zones and footwall lodes, with assays due in December this year.

ClearVue Technologies (ASX:CPV) rose quickly on Monday on no breaking news, however the sustainable materials company last week struck a new distributor deal, expanding its footprint into large parts of the US mid-west – via Colorado, Missouri and Arizona.

Riversgold (ASX:RGL) jumped on Monday after making headlines late in the week having acquired ‘a key 74 square kilometre tenement application directly along strike – just 8km northeast of the major Andover lithium (spodumene) pegmatite discovery of Azure Minerals (ASX:AZS).’ That’s the spot in the lithium-famous Andover Corridor where AZS struck spodumene glory with drilling intersections of up to 209.4m at 1.42% Li2O.

Consultants will start exploration ‘in earnest within the week,’ RGL said last week.

Haranga Resources (ASX:HAR) was also up on no news in particular other than the cut of its jib – well managed, well located and in the right business, at the right time – the uranium spot price last week punching through the US$80/lb mark for the first time in 12 years.

Haranga’s difference here might be the Saraya uranium project in Senegal where a major auger drilling program is currently under way.

As my Stockhead colleague Michael Washbourne lays bare in this casual cracker of an update – it’s make and break time for HAR…
