BPH Energy (ASX:BPH) BPH was up about 200% yesterday, saying it’s reviewing what appear to be a swag of legal options, following reports wonderfully former Prime Minister Scott Morrison may have misused a little of his apparently endless powers to block a BPH exploration permit.

Morrison had secretly appointed himself minister for home affairs and treasury during the Covid-19 pandemic, in addition to the health, finance and resources portfolios previously revealed, according to wonderfully placed new Prime Minister Anthony Albanese.

“BPH Energy Ltd wishes to advise that in light of the recent media coverage regarding former Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s use of ministerial powers to block the PEP-11 gas exploration licence, the company is currently undertaking a full review of its options, including potential for legal channels, as part of its strategy to protect shareholder value,” the company said.

Australian Pacific Coal (ASX:AQC) was approaching $0.27, but yesterday the “Let’s get some of that sweet, sweet takeover money” bus completely missed its $0.30 stop, rocketing along with its foot to the floor and its chin on the horn with the stock hitting $0.40.

Magmatic Resources (ASX:MAG)  jumped off the back of super copper intersections with visible copper sulphide mineralisation at its Corvette Prospect in NSW.

Visible copper = circa 45% share price gain.

Also, another proper copper prospect, American West Metals (ASX:AW1), enjoyed a share price kick after finding new copper at its Storm project in Canada.
