Eagle Plains Resources Ltd. (CVE:EPL) shares jumped 26% to $0.145 on Thursday after the gold explorer announced that it has signed an agreement in which Silver Standard Resources Inc.

As well, shares of Intermap (TSE:IMP) slipped 11% to $0.08, after sinking 36% on Wednesday, as the provider of location-based solutions said its CEO, Todd Oseth, and CFO, Richard Mohr, are no longer with the Company.
Aurinia Pharmaceuticals Inc.
