On Stockhead today, resources expert Guy le Page says the pieces are in place for a bullish gold market, a Q&A with Group 6 Metals (formerly KIS) chairman Johann Jacobs, and how temporary actually is China’s steel collapse?

But first… the day ahead.

It’s a quiet one on the data front, but two more IPOs — a biotech play and another junior resources explorer — are on the cards.

Biopharmaceutical company Tissue Repair Ltd (ASX:TRP), which specialises in advanced healing products for chronic wounds, will make its debut after raising $22m from investors at $1.15 per share.

And copper/gold play Parabellum Resources (ASX:PBL) will also join the boards following a $5m raise at 20c per share.

Small cap resources stocks dominated yesterday’s winner’s list.

Among them was Galileo Mining (ASX:GAL), the $34m explorer backed by mining luminary Mark Creasy.

The company reckons it could be onto a massive sulphide discovery at its ‘Norseman’ project in WA’s rich Kambalda nickel belt, after uncovering some impressive samples near surface, even though GAL’s aircore drilling program was unable to substantially break through the massive sulphide.

Outside of resources, medtech company Rhinomed (ASX:RNO), which specialises in nasal technology to assist in things like improved breathing and sleep, jumped more than 20% on no news.
