Despite making hard work of the day, London’s AIM Index managed to tack on a few points worth of gains by the closing bell, finishing up three at 1252.17.

  • UK SPAC +21%
  • Wishbone Gold +20%
  • Revolution Bars -28%
  • Kodal Minerals -13%

Kodal Minerals [LON:KOD] slumped 13% on the day. The stock saw marked gains at the start of the month but has been under some sustained selling pressure over the last week off the back of political uncertainty in Mali. The wide spread being quoted here may be exacerbating the situation, but with much of the upside off that expected Lithium project now having been eroded, if you can look beyond the political uncertainty, there may be some potential…
