The top sector yesterday was resources, which gained nearly 2 per cent.

Copper explorer Helix Resources (ASX:HLX) led the pack yesterday, after announcing a $4m capital raise to finance additional drilling efforts at its Canbelego project in NSW following some sizeable copper hits in recent weeks.

Also rising strongly was copper-gold minnow Eastern Iron (ASX:EFE), which had previously announced an entitlement offer looking to raise $1,072,370 from investors at 0.8c per share.

Although the health sector ended down by 0.16 per cent, there were a few announcements from biotech stocks that lifted their share prices. 

Leading the pack in biotech were Imugene (ASX:IMU) which announced a licensing agreement with world-renowned cancer research centre in Los Angeles, the City of Hope. The licence covers a novel method of immunotherapy, which combines oncolytic virus and cell therapy technology.
