Explorer Genesis Minerals (ASX:GMD) held its gains and was the standout performer all day, more than doubling after announcing a $20.8m funding package.

The money will be used to fund additional exploration and feasibility studies for GMD at its 1.6Moz (and growing) Ulysses project.

GMD’s capital raise will be cornerstoned by mining luminary Raleigh Finlayson, who will be joined on the board by former Fortescue boss Neville Power.

Among stocks with news, all the morning resources winners held their gains to populate the top end of yesterday’s Closing Bell winner’s list. Get the full resources wrap here.

Outside of resources, biotech stock Rhythm Biosciences (ASX:RHY) was among the leaders after providing an update on the clinical trial for its ColoSTAT test kit used in the detection of colorectal cancer.

RHY said it’s enlisted 815 patients across 11 Australian sites for the trail for coloSTAT — a low-cost, simple blood test to early detect colorectal cancer, which is aimed at mass-market screening.
