RockTalk is a Stockhead video series featuring a roundtable of resources experts discussing a new macro topic each week.  

In this episode, host Peter Strachan takes a look at molybdenum – what is driving its recent price surge and some prospective local opportunities.

Populating the expert panel for this discussion are Noel Ong, Managing Director at Taiton Resources (ASX:T88) and Daniel Thomas, Managing Director of Hammer Metals (ASX:HMX).

Taiton Resources is an early-stage mineral exploration and development company that has a Shallow Mineral System within the Olympic Dam Mineralising Event. The company is focused on projects in Western Australia and South Australia. Taiton’s Merino prospect is shaping up to be a prize possession, with assays of porphyry-style rock chips returning both molybdenum and silver.

Hammer Metals Limited is a Copper and Gold Explorer with projects in two of the world’s great metal provinces and its Mount Isa Project includes five copper-gold JORC resources and a range of early-stage greenfield prospects.
