On Stockhead today…the 50 small cap miners that made history in 2021, 5 ETF trades for 2022 with Betashares’ David Bassanese, and forget the reopening trade — it’s structural growth stocks that are paying off now.

But first, the day ahead.

There’s eight days left in 2021 which means there’s still enough time for a s**t tonne of IPOs to hit the boards in this wild, magical unicorn of a year for junior capital raisings.

Boy is this an interesting one, Black Mountain Energy (ASX:BME), a gang looking to get fracking at its Valhalla project in WA’s Canning Basin will list at 1pm AEDT.

The moratorium on the practice was lifted in WA back in November 2018 after a scientific inquiry.

BME says the advantage of its Valhalla project, which has a best estimate prospective gas resource of 11,805 Bcf is the lower levels of CO2 it would produce compared to conventional gas.

Black Mountain is connected to the US Black Mountain stable which owns shale and frac sand operations in the States and the Lanfranchi nickel mine and a stake in Poseidon Nickel (ASX:POS) through its Perth business Black Mountain Metals.

An hour later at 2pm AEDT the more conventional copper, nickel, PGE and zinc explorer Rubix Resources (ASX:RB6) will list. They have traditional mining exploration projects in Queensland and WA to explore.




Nova Minerals (ASX:NVA) – resource upgrade
Aston Minerals (ASX:ASO) – exploration results
Carnaby Resources (ASX:CNB) – re-release of announcement
Scout Security (ASX:SCT) – convertible note
