Neometals (ASX:NMT) spin-off Widgie Nickel (ASX:WIN), has the ‘Mt Edwards’ project in WA, where 162,600t of nickel across 11 separate resources has already been identified.

Yesterday the company announced a high-grade nickel discovery at Gillet North, within the wider Mt Edwards project.

Massive and semi-massive nickel sulphides have returned intersections of up to 12m at 3.40% nickel from 200m, including 5m at 4.84% nickel from 206m and 18m at 4.69% nickel from 246m.

MD Steve Norregaard says this drill result is, quite simply, “outstanding”.

“The discovery of thick, high-grade mineralisation at Gillett North is extremely exciting for Widgie,” he said.

“A brownfield discovery in the middle of the Widgie South area, high-grade in nature, with ample room to grow, will enhance Widgie’s existing resource base and ultimately enhance the underlying project economics.”

The company wants to be a ‘production ready’ nickel stock by the end of 2023.

Immuno-oncology clinical group Immugene (ASX:IMU) reported a win in the war against advanced gastric cancer.

The company’s Phase 2 study of HER-Vaxx in Her-2/Neu overexpressing advanced/metastatic gastric/GEJ cancer has shown a 41.5% survival benefit for patients treated with HER-Vaxx plus SOC chemotherapy compared to SOC chemotherapy alone.

Sub-penny struggler BikeExchange (ASX:BEX), says its recent entitlement offer brought just shy of $2 million into the company, and a 7.2% stake buy-in from Melbournian fund managers HG Hiscock.

Kuniko (ASX:KNI) confirmed cobalt mineralisation has been identified in “multiple sections of diamond drill core” from the priority Middagshville target at Skuterud in Norway.

Skuterud consists of four granted licences covering roughly 1,250 hectares in southern Norway, within 100km of the Oslo port.

With five drill holes now complete, KNI says drilling will continue at the Middagshvile target until around mid-July, with around 2,500 metres of drilling completed to date.

Logging of the drill core is occurring in parallel with the drilling, while laboratory assay results are expected around September.
