This has confirmed and extended the substantial zones of mineralisation at GreenRoc’s Kalaaq Deposit, located on the Greenlandic mainland and due south of its 100% owned Amitsoq Graphite Project, which is one of the highest-grade graphite projects globally.

It would appear that there is a change of the guard at Nanosynth (NNN), the former Remote Monitored Systems, where the Chairman Anthony Legge has left for pastures new.

Genedrive (GDR) delivered its final results, underlining the way it has managed to get through one of the greatest opportunities in the diagnostics space in history by reducing its losses to £0.7m from £20m previously.

Orosur Mining (OMI) updated on its Anzá Project in Colombia. Assays have been taken from five additional holes, with most holes drilled for geological and stratigraphic reason.
