Pharmaxis making strong progress with significant value inflection points ahead Gary Phillips, chief executive of Pharmaxis Ltd (ASX:PXS) tells Proactive they're continuing to make good progress with their drug development programmes.

After receiving $42 million in milestone payments from Boehringer Ingelheim, the company expects more results later in 2018 which will impact the risk-adjusted valuation of the deal.

Phillips says the NASH study is due to read out in the September quarter and the diabetic retinopathy study in the December quarter this year.

He adds that both studies will provide the first clinical proof of concept in humans and, if positive, would represent a huge step forward in their progress.

The second key event for Pharmaxis will be the mid‐year read out from the phase 1 studies that are underway on their two lead candidates from the anti fibrotic LOXL2 program.

Mining Capital's Alastair Ford talks up strong gold prices in 2018 Mining Capital's Alastair Ford chats about how ongoing strength in the global economy is powering mining, with mining company share prices doing well compared to a few years ago.

Two elements contributing to this are more demand for metals and how much they can sell metals for -- a weaker dollar is contributing to higher metals prices.

Small gold operations in the market need to factor in how sterling is doing against the dollar, since they will be spending in pounds to mine the gold. Ford says the outlook for gold miners already in production is favorable.

Tertiary Minerals, Advanced Oncotherapy among Alan Green's 2018 stocks to watch Brand Communications' Alan Green highlights his small cap stocks to watch in 2018.

First on Alan's hit list is Tertiary Minerals (LON:TYM).

Tertiary’s share price has been on a good run recently since it announced they'd signed an MoU with global commodities group Possehl to enter into an offtake agreement to support the group’s three fluorspar projects.

Possehl, which is part of German-based commodities business Cremer, will provide funds to develop the deposits and for any acquisitions Tertiary may make to bulk them up.

''All of the stars are in a row here and I think Tertiary Minerals are set for a great year in 2018''.

Next on his 'ones to watch' is Prairie Mining Ltd (ASX:PDZ).

''They've got two key coking coal projects - the flagship of which has been referred to by many in the industry as the most advanced coking coal project in the northern hemisphere, which is quite an accolade when you consider the other mines that are around''.

''Coking coal is a critical mineral ... it's vital for the production of steel and as we know the infrastructure throughout Europe and the UK will require a lot of steel in future - plus we have the burgeoning electric vehicle industry too''.

Shares in Advanced Oncotherapy PLC (LON:AVO), the developer of next-generation proton therapy systems for cancer treatment, shot up nearly 30% earlier this month after they secured £37.4mln of fresh funding, with £30mln of this coming from a new Chinese investor.

Green says ''The company's at a very exciting phase now but even now it's still worth around 40 million sterling and each of its machines will sell for around 45 million dollars ... so there's still I believe a tremendous amount of upside to come here''.

''2018 is the home run for them'', Green adds, ''Investors are in for a very exciting year''.

Green also chats through the investment case for Cadence Minerals (LON:KDNC).

Cadence is a mining investment company that've recently acquired up to 100% of six prospective hard rock lithium assets in Argentina from Lithium Technologies Pty Ltd and Lithium Supplies Pty Ltd.

They're also invested in Bacanora Minerals Ltd (LON:BCN) who, a few weeks back, published the results of a definitive feasibility study for the Sonora lithium deposit in Mexico that valued it at US$1.25bn.

Plus they also have a stake in European Metal Holdings (LON:EMH) and its Cinovec project in the Czech Republic.

To round things off Alan gives a quick couple of comments on blockchain and crypto-currency and where he reckons there could be opportunities next year.

''The fact that this technology can connect pretty much everyone in the world is massive ...and that's why we're seeing this huge explosion in the value of crypto-currency''.
