WHAT GOT YOU TALKING YESTERDAY?

Readers love a good fight. And our first takeover stoush of 2022 is a cracker, with at least one kid taking the long way home while figuring out how to explain the rip in his school jumper to mum.

They also loved reading about Kingfisher Mining’s (ASX:KFM) promising results from a late 2021 drilling program, which include an “impressive” 12m at 1.12% total rare earth oxides (TREO) at the ‘Mick Well’ prospect, including a “rather wonderful” 4m long high-grade chunk grading 1.73% TREO.

That Kingfisher news also translated into spicy returns on the stock market. A 33% pop to 0.24c is a great way to kick off 2022.

And something’s up with gold explorer First AU (ASX:FAU), which ripped higher at the opening bell before going into a trading halt pending a further announcement regarding a proposed acquisition. Woo.

Not much to see here. Superior Resources (ASX:SPQ) was the only mover on decent volume, down 17.8% on its mystery 100pc+ rise just before the new year.
