YESTERDAY’S BIGGEST WINNERS

Yesterday’s Charlie Sheen stock was Golden Cross Resources (ASX:GCR), up like a champion on no discernable news other than really proving itself to be one of February’s biggest movers.

This formerly tepid, kind of snoozy China-backed copper-gold explorer came out of a two-and-a-half-year suspension in February and has been hitting them out of the middle of the bat a la Matthew Hayden or Justin Langer ever since.

Also higher after reporting some “outstanding” lithium and rubidium rock chip results at its Manindi project in WA was Metals Australia (ASX:MLS).

Staying with the commodities – they’re like our best resource –  how about Cobalt Blue(ASX:COB)? The company’s Broken Hill cobalt project  — the only large-scale, non-African, green-field primary-cobalt kicking-butt project in the world — has received Major Project Status (MPS) from the Federal Government.

CEO Joe Kaderavek says MPS will greatly assist COB raise cash, and generally get to tell everyone this here project is backed by the Australian Government.

“COB can now boast both Made in Australia and Backed by Australia.”

The $165m market cap stock is up 25%. Also, the cobalt price recently hit $US34/lb.

TSX-ASX listed LionOne Metals (ASX:LLO) is up over 17% and has gone hard in developing the high-grade ~650,000oz Tuvatu gold project in Fiji.

There’s a bunch more rigs on site and LLO says it’s in the midst of ramping up infill and extensional drilling at the project.

There was $39m Canadian in the bank at the end of December.

Finally the Godolphin Resources (ASX:GRL) share price rallied up over 8% today after signing a farm-in and JV with ESX9 to earn up to a 75% interest in the Narraburra Rare Earth Element Project.

It’s not entirely clear who Amani (ASX:ANL) pissed off yesterday, but they’re down 50% and it’s not looking terrific.
