WHAT GOT YOU TALKING YESTERDAY?

Two words: ‘geothermal lithium’.

As Stockhead’s Reuben Adams pointed out yesterday, that succinct phrase is what helped turn Vulcan Energy (ASX:VUL) from an $8m market cap explorer into a $1.5bn project developer.

And yesterday, shares in Pan Asia Metals (ASX:PAM) more than doubled amid optimism it can follow in Vulcan’s footsteps at its ‘Kata Thong’ project in southern Thailand.
