WHAT GOT YOU TALKING YESTERDAY?

Is beleaguered lithium play AVZ Minerals (ASX:AVZ) going to rejoin the bourse today? Probs not, but…

The former investor favourite has been in suspension since Chinese gold miner Zijin publicly claimed the rights to 15% of the giant Manono lithium project in the DRC in May.

AVZ has long claimed to hold 75% of Manono but Zijin says AVZ’s stake could drop to as low as 36%.

Spicy stuff.
