WINNERS

Stocks highlighted in yellow have made market-moving announcements (click headings to sort).

Early gains were led by a monumental move in Petratherm (ASX:PTR), which said early drilling had uncovered a “major High-Value Rare Earth Discovery” at its Comet project in the Northern Gawler Craton, South Australia.

Shallow drill testing on the top 3 metres of prospective clay formations revealed “impressive concentrations of high-value REEs which remain open at depth below and out into surrounding areas”, the company said.

Large cap Ramsay Health Care (ASX:RHC) also rose sharply, after global investment group KKR lobbed a bid for the private hospital operator valuing it at more than $20bn.
