Syrah Resources (SYR) Nearology Play

Syrah Resources (SYR) is currently in trading halt pending assay results from it's Balama Graphite Project. Major shareholder Copper Strike (CSE) is also in trading halt for the same reason.

One stock that has recently captured attention of the market is Triton Gold (TON). Yesterday's spike of $0.03 or approximately 43% to $0.10 attracted a "please explain" from the ASX to which the company advised it had no news to announce or explanation on the increase in volume and share price. Trading today in the stock was frenetic as it surged to a high of $0.12 with a VWAP of $0.105759 and closing price of $0.094.

Triton Gold is definitely a stock to add to the watchlist. It has a market capitilisation of $10.2 million compared to Syrah Resources lofty $370 million. TON's share price has been running on the fact that it has acquired the rights to purchase 5 graphite prospecting licence applications in Mozambique. The ground is only 2km away from SYR's.
