What got you talking last week

On Twitter it was all about the nickel rush in Western Australia. Ever since Chalice Gold Mines’ (ASX:CHN) high-grade Julimar discovery last month there’s been a wave of small caps looking to have similar success.

In case you missed it, our own Peter Strachan spoke with managing director Alex Dorsch in the latest edition of the Wildcatter podcast.
