YESTERDAY’S WINNERS

Yesterday’s winners were the beneficiaries of the big resources story of the day — the joint venture between junior explorers Coda Minerals (ASX:COD) and Torrens Mining (ASX:TRN) which hit 200m of “intense IOCG alteration” at the ‘Elizabeth Creek’ project in South Australia.

IOCG stands for iron-oxide-copper-gold, and the nature of the deposits can be absolutely mammoth. This one included around 50m of copper sulphides as part of the discovery.

Also rising strongly was infrastructure company Cardno (ASX:CDD), which indicated it might be back in play as a takeover target based on recent approaches from interested parties.
