MONDAY’S BIGGEST WINNERS

Delecta (ASX:DLC) was one of the biggest uranium winners and it actually had news.

The company told shareholders it was resuming exploration at its Rex uranium project in Colorado, with spot prices forecast to rise short term to US$48/lb by 2024 and US$60/lb by 2028 (although at the current price trajectory that would be conservative).

“Due to renewed optimism surrounding future uranium pricing, the Company recently decided to ramp up exploration at its majority owned REX uranium-vanadium project,” managing director Malcolm Day said. “The project’s history of uranium mining, its proximity to operating infrastructure and the prevailing supportive government regime, bodes well for the development of the project.

“We look forward to continuing exploration at the REX project and evaluating other potential uranium-vanadium projects in the area.”

Outside of uranium, oil and gas supplier Hydrocarbon Dynamics (ASX:HCD) was up almost 36% on positive news from a paid trial of its multi-flow product with a ‘large Australian oil and gas producer’ in the Cooper Basin.

The paid trial consists of three separate treatments to remediate and inhibit the debilitating effects of paraffin deposition in oil tanks, wells, and flowlines using HCD Multi-Flow.

According to the company, results to August 26 indicated that since the introduction of HCD Multi-Flow the operator reported “exceptional improvements in well performance, cleaner flow lines and no additional build-up of sludge in the tanks.”
