On Stockhead today, Guy Le Page, World Gold Council go long… gold, charting the new investing landscape, and Liam Twigger’s holding out for a hero.

But first, the day ahead.

It’s a biggun on the data front.

At 8am AEST the Reserve Bank releases ‘Review of the Yield Target’, and at 9.30am AEST the weekly consumer sentiment survey results are issued from ANZ and Roy Morgan.

At 10am AEST the Reserve Bank governor delivers a speech entitled “Economic Outlook and Monetary Policy”.

“Investors have been disappointed by the lack of communication from the Reserve Bank about its monetary policy strategy and this is likely to be addressed by the governor,” CommSec says.

And at 11.30am AEST minutes of the last Reserve Bank Board meeting are issued.

“The RBA made the surprise decision to lift rates by 50 basis points, so investors will be assessing the discussion that went into that judgement,” CommSec says.

$15m market cap minnow Culpeo Minerals (ASX:CPO) jumped +30% on multiple high-grade copper drilling hits at the emerging ‘Lana Corina’ discovery in Chile.

Kingfisher Mining (ASX:KFM) uncovered high-grade rare earths at its Gascoyne mineral field in WA, with rock chips assaying up to 21% TREO.

A recent 16-hole drilling program completed at Cosmo Metals (ASX:CMO) ‘Mt Venn’ and ‘Eastern Mafic’ prospects is now complete with copper sulphides intersected in all holes at Mt Venn.

Very promising. Results are due back from the lab late June, CMO says, with drilling set to recommence in July.

Not a small cap, but lithium project developer Lake Resources (ASX:LKE) was pummelled after announcing that company-making MD Steve Promnitz was leaving for other pastures.

Promnitz – who steered LKE from 3c tiddler to $1.40 ASX200 entrant — was key in the early identification of direct lithium extraction and the alignment with tech partner California-based Lilac Solutions.
