Last Friday’s Zero to Hero instalment featuring Bellevue Gold (ASX:BGL) proved particularly popular. This stock has surged from 2.5c to +95c per share thanks to success at its namesake project — one previously rejected by heavyweight Barrick.
Bellevue has now defined 2.2 million ounces (moz) grading 11.3 grams per tonne (g/t) gold— making it one of the fastest growing and highest-grade gold discoveries in the world. #zerotohero #ASX #ausbiz $BGL https://t.co/4s32CqXlmM
