What got you talking yesterday

One nickel stock that has been running hot for months, even pre-Tesla hype, is Chalice Gold Mines (ASX:CHN). Having begun the year at 24c it is now over $2.80 thanks to its Julimar nickel discovery.

But yesterday it announced it had made a new PGE-copper-gold discovery at its Julimar project, which captured readers’ attention.
