Whitebark Energy (ASX:WBE) was by far the market’s big winner at the closing bell yesterday after announcing the continued progress being made at the Rex-4 development within the Wizard Lake Oil and Gas Field in Alberta, Canada.

The Rex-4 well was allowed a “rest” period prior to commencing clean-up with clean-up flow rates reporting ~230 barrels of fracture stimulation fluid per day on November 20 2022, at a pump-rate of three  strokes per minute.

Copper Strike (ASX:CSE) also topped the charts with the appointment of Keith Bowes as an independent non-executive director.

Bowes has led various resource project evaluations and study teams that have developed a number of projects across a range of commodities and was previously managing director of ASX uranium development company, Lotus Resources (ASX:LOT), which has the Kayelekera Uranium Project in Malawi.

He led Lotus from acquisition through a definitive feasibility study and is currently preparing for final investment decision.
