Rise and Shine: Everything you need to know before the ASX opens

Estimated read time 6 min read


Good morning everyone, and welcome to 21 June, 2024 – an important day in the history of farming and often-dreadful folk rock music.

It was on this day in 1834 that an American inventor and businessman called Cyrus McCormick patented the reaping machine, a startling step forward that made farming a lot easier and briefly put Death out of a job.

It made sense to build a reaping machine, as the earliest sowing machine had been in use for quite some time, after Jethro Tull invented a seed-planting drill in 1701, before celebrating his achievement by recording seminal prog-rock masterpiece Aqualung 270 years later.

Luckily for you, you won’t need to know how to play the flute while standing on one leg in order to get the information you need before the market opens today.

If you fancy a pre-lunch tipple, we’ve got the good oil on some top shelf plonk and – as always – I’ve thrown together lots of fiddly little things below, so you don’t need to go ferreting all over the internet for your ASX info this morning.

Up 177% at the time of writing, Terra Metals (ASX:TM1) was the best of the bunch on Thursday, taking off on news that early-stage drilling has hit multiple copper platinum group element (PGE) reefs from surface, only 15km down the road from BHP’s (ASX:BHP) $1.7 billion Nebo-Babel mine development.

The WA-focused critical minerals junior explorer reports early-stage drilling at the company’s Dante project in West Musgrave has confirmed the multiple “Platreef-style”  PGE reefs from surface.

The results hail from a further 14 wide-spaced, “first-pass reconnaissance” drill holes at Dante Reefs, and these are defined so far over 4.5km of the Reef 1 and 2 targets, with mineralisation open along strike and downdip.

Up about 36% was Hexagon Energy Materials (ASX:HXG) which has completed a funding round which it says takes the company to the FEED stage of its WAH2 low-emissions ammonia project.

The funding round of A$1 million (A$0.94 million net of fees) was completed with funds to be received by tomorrow – 21 June 2024.

HXG says to minimise dilution to existing shareholders, the funding was structured as a convertible note which references future share prices to allow Hexagon to achieve a higher effective issue price from any higher valuations after re-rating as announcements are made, whilst also guaranteeing a minimum conversion price of A$0.02.

Junior uranium and goldie Haranga Resources’ (ASX:HAR) main game is in West Africa, primarily Senegal. The company’s portfolio spans Senegal, Cote d’Ivoire, and Burkina Faso, covering 2,702sqkm across seven tenements, and its share price was up nicely on Thursday as well.

HAR upgraded uranium resources at its Saraya project in West Africa to 16.11 million pounds, with the majority of this within 140m from surface.

Control Bionics (ASX:CBL) was also moving quickly on Thursday morning, after revealing that its autonomous wheelchair module, DROVE, has been officially included as a Class 1 Medical Device in the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods, which means CBL can now commence commercial sales of the DROVE module in Australia.

And Aldoro Resources (ASX:ARN) was the next best performer, climbing nicely after announcing that the company has picked up some crackerjack rock chip samples at its Kameelburg carbonatite project.

Results from 74  newly collected samples are in and those highlight the REE-rich nature of the carbonatite with TREO(+Y) assays ranging from 1.16 to 9.89%. The most notable niobium assays revealed up to 10.38% Nb2O5 and 9.89% TREO.
