Ardiden (ASX:ADV) closed highest, courtesy of good news from its joint venture lithium project with Green Technology Metals (ASX:GT1) in Ontario, Canada.

Drilling at the project — in which GT1 holds a 51% stake — returned a thick 40m intersection at 1.54% lithium, which gives it plenty of upside, the two companies said, with a further 10 holes yet to be drilled in a 3,500m drilling program.

Also posting strong gains on Monday was Lunnon Metals (ASX:LM8) after flagging strong drilling results including “7m @ 9.22% nickel only 120m below surface” at its Baker Shoot prospect, an emerging discovery within the Kambalda nickel project.

Beforepay joined the boards on the heels of a major negative re-rate for the listed BNPL sector. And… oof:

Sector leader (and soon-to-be Block Inc subsidiary) Afterpay is down more than 60% from its all-time highs, with falls of around 80% for other companies in the space.

Beforepay provides a similar service, except instead of paying merchants up front in return for a fee, it provides customers the option to access their employee pay earlier, with variable repayment terms between 7-14 days.
