Follow up drilling at BAM East will start at the end of next month after initial drilling established a 30m wide gold zone, 100m long and down dip that was open in all directions.

Meanwhile, IFC, the investment arm of the World Bank, has further backed Condor Gold (LON:CNR) through exercising a non-dilute clause.

The clause was inserted in 2014 when IFC bought its original stake the Nicaragua-based gold explorer through a £3.5mln investment.

Over at S & U Plc (LON:SUS), the motor finance and specialist lender has not been taking its foot off the pedal this year.

According to an upbeat trading statement issued ahead of the annual general meeting (AGM) on Tuesday, “trading is very good”.

It draws a line under the long running dispute with the investment group.

Today Amur Minerals Corporation (LON:AMC) said its 2016 drill season is underway on the Kun-Manie nickel-copper licence in the Far East of Russia.

The work has two main objectives. It will be used to compile a large representative metallurgical sample for the MKF deposit, while there will also be an exploration element to it.

Another thing, SeaEnergy PLC (LON:SEA) has signed an exclusivity agreement with a potential buyer of its Return to Scene business (R2S) subsidiary.

The company told investors it had been in detailed discussions with a number of potential purchasers of R2S before entering into exclusivity with the preferred bidder.
