Alliance Resources (ASX:AGS) last night reported that major shareholder Ian Gandel tabled an off-market takeover bid at 18c per share – a ~35% premium on the last closing price.

Fresh analysis of historical gold sampling has uncovered several lithium anomalies at Castle Minerals’ (ASX:CDT) ‘Woodcutters’ project in the Norseman region of WA.

Woodcutters encompasses some 10km of the “Western Australia Lithium Corridor” which hosts the nearby Bald Hill, Buldania, and Mt Marion deposits.

The Collection House (ASX:CLH) share price is circa 20% the better after Credit Corp (ASX:CCP) announced it had entered into a binding agreement to acquire CLH’s New Zealand purchased debt ledger (PDL) for $12m.

And Peel Mining (ASX:PEX) will raise $23m to grow the ‘South Cobar’ copper project – “with the ultimate aim to advance towards development of a 10-year copper operation”.

The cash will be raised at 18c per share – a very reasonable 10% discount to the last closing price — with the placement to be cornerstoned by mine finder and company make Josh Pitt.
