Shares of IQ-AI (IQAI) more than doubled with a near 150% rise, both blowing the technical lights out and the fundamental doors off simultaneous. The news that investors cheered was that the US Food and Drug Administration had granted market clearance for the Liver Surface Nodularity (LSN) software application. Now this has been won, IQ-AI’s subsidiary, Imaging Biometrics, can begin to actively market and sell LSN in the USA.
There was good cheer to be had in the wake of Wishbone Gold’s (WSBN) latest announcement as the share rose over 50%, with some in the market talking of the sub £3m market cap mining company as being the next Greatland Gold (GGP). This was off the back of Wishbone reporting it had identified four magnetic targets of considerable size covering 2.4km by 400m on its Patersons Range Project in the Havieron and Telfer region of Western Australia. Further positives is that the targets are on a larger area and much shallower than the Havieron discovery, with the top of the magnetic targets ranging from 150m to 250m below surface. Wishbone said is now moving to close the Patersons Range Project tenements acquisition announced early last month.
Speaking of Greatland Gold (GGP), it was mentioned in dispatches by Primorus Investments (PRIM). The company said it had completed the sale of its remaining holding in Greatland Gold.

The victory run was underlined by Primorus reminding the market that it made an investment of £630,000 in Greatland in late 2018 and early 2019.
In a busy day for mining minnows we saw Cobra Resources (COBR) stretch 16% higher.

The stage 1 work programme is expected to complete imminently, with Cobra then having its initial 50% stake in the project.
Fellow miner Empire Metals (EEE) seemed to be getting some positive read across from the “Wishbone Effect”, with the stock being up 25% after a slow start. Here traders were not only suggesting that a recent seller in the stock was out, but perhaps more importantly, that there may be further Eclipse project data imminent.
Shares of investment and funding group Riverfort Global (RGO) responded with an 11% rise to the announcement the previous day regarding the declaration of a 7.5% gross yield for the financial year ending 31 December 2020.
