What a week to be in copper.

Copper explorer Cohiba received a query from the ASX after shares surged 81 per cent from 2.1c on the last day of 2020 to an intra-day peak of 3.8c on Thursday.

CopperMoly (ASX:COY) – a PNG focused copper-gold explorer which hasn’t actually done a whole lot of exploring lately – earnt an ASX speeding ticket after surging +100 per cent on Friday.

And fellow copper play Argonaut (ASX:ARE) has the all clear to drill its Murdie project in South Australia.

The explorer is hunting iron oxide copper-gold (IOCG) mineralisation in the style of Olympic Dam, Carrapateena and BHP’s recent Oak Dam discovery.

Lepidico (ASX:LPD) says it is now in confidential discussions with up to six lithium consumers and three caesium/rubidium consumers.

Lepidico has been advised by one prospective customer that its analysis of a lithium hydroxide monohydrate sample provided in 2020 should be completed in early 2021, allowing offtake discussions to advance.
