As our Gregor reported yesterday at lunch, Belararox (ASX:BRX) jumped out of the blocks yesterday morning circa 25% on the back of an expansion of its resource and development area at the flagship Belara project.

The company says it’s identified 34 new exploration targets outside the Belara and Native Bee resource areas, including 11 new high priority targets with a combined strike of 8km, which is about eight times the length of currently known mineralisation.

And Tyranna Resources’ (ASX:TYX) lithium news out of Angola has kept investors on the boil again this morning, adding further gains to Monday’s impressive results.
