For ASX small cap observers on Friday there was one clear winner from start to finish — Bougainville Copper (ASX:BOC).

The stock ripped higher on some big regulatory news out of Papua New Guinea, where reports emerged that local authorities may push the restart button on BOC’s massive copper-gold mine.

It’s been a cool 33 years since production ceased at the site, after local conflict in PNG escalated into a 10-year civil war (get the full background here). BOC still has to get its mining licence back, but Friday’s news sent the stock surging back to decade-highs.

Also rising strongly was clinical-stage medicinal cannabis company Incannex Healthcare (ASX:IHL), which jumped by 20% on no news.

And SME lender N1 Holdings (ASX:N1H) climbed by another 12% on no news. The ~$15m market cap company, which also provides mortgage broker services, has now risen by around 300% since last June.
