Plus, our prediction of a re-rating for Echo Resources is now reverberating through the market

No one much cared earlier this year when there was a particularly nasty takeover battle between Lithium Australia (LIT) as the suitor and Lepidico (LPD) as the target. The pair are looking to disrupt the lithium market, built as it is on hard-rock spodumene concentrates and subsurface brines, with their separately developed hydrometallurgical processes that have lithium-bearing micas as the starting point.

Plus, Macquarie says the price outlook for cobalt is superb, albeit a bit bumpy, for years to come, thanks to electric vehicles.

Until quite recently, the share price performance of Meteoric Resources (ASX:MEI) was anything but meteoric. Trading at a princely 1c a share in the opening months of the year, the market clearly wasn’t interested in its Webb diamond exploration joint venture in Western Australia or its Warrego North/Tennant Creek copper-gold hunt in the Northern Territory for that matter.

Iggy Tan was ahead of his time when he set up Galaxy Resources (GXY) to prosper from the lithium-ion battery boom. Galaxy is now a $1.2 billion company. But when Iggy left the company in June 2013, the boom had not arrived as expected and times were tough for the company and for Iggy himself. But since 2014 Iggy has been nurturing his new baby, Altech Chemicals (ATC). And like his ahead-of-the-curve work in the lithium space with Galaxy, Iggy is now doing the same for Altech in the fast-growing high-purity alumina (HPA) space.

Only a sad old grump wouldn’t be getting a buzz from the modern-day gold rush taking shape in the Pilbara.

Only a sad old grump wouldn’t be getting a buzz from the modern-day gold rush taking shape in the Pilbara. Quad bikes loaded with metal detectors and jack hammers are barrelling through the bush in pursuit of the melon seed-sized gold nuggets to be had from the region’s extensive Witwatersrand-type conglomerates. It’s a sight to behold.

Being the young son of an usherette at Melbourne’s grand Regent theatre in the late 1960s meant free access to the films on show over the summer months. Sounds deluxe but no one should have to sit through 100 showings of the whimsical musical Chitty Chitty Bang Bang under the watchful eye of a torch carrying mother. It should be no surprise then that the songs have stuck in the memory. One of them in particular has had a lasting impact, The Roses of Success. The hook line is: “Up from the ashes, up from the ashes, grow the roses of success.’’

Plus, Alkane’s gold and rare earths combination proving a magnetic attraction for investors

Chatter about the re-emergence of a mining boom is all a bit premature. What is more certain is that exploration expenditure and activity is on the rise in response to the broad advance in most commodities and evidence of cohesive global economic growth. And while the jury is out on a another mining boom, there is a body of thought that this time around, we are at least in for a golden era of exploration success, with or without the price and volume  excesses of the last boom.

Zinc’s spectacular 48% price rise to $US1.40/lb from last (calendar) year’s average of 95c/lb is forcing a rethink on valuations across the bunch of near-development plays in the metal on the ASX. It’s a case of valuations having to catch up with the runaway metal price. The biggest of the plays, New Century Zinc (NCZ) with its tailings retreatment plans for the mothballed Century mine in north Queensland, is a case in point.
