A nickel mine with cobalt potential piqued the interest of more than a few battery metals stock speculators Thursday. Here’s some small stocks making big moves on Thursday, October 11, 2018 (as of 4 pm EST):
European Electric Metals Inc. (TSXV:EVX), a battery metals stock, surged 21% to $0.23 on Thursday after agreeing to acquire the Skroska Iron-Nickel mine in Albania, in which cobalt of up to 0.54% has been identified in an initial EVX sampling program.
As well, shares of Fortuna Silver Mines Inc. (TSX:FVI) slipped 3% to $5.38 as the precious metals miner said abnormally high rainfall has caused a contingency pond to overflow at the dry stack tailings facility at its San Jose mine in Mexico.
