Company News 
Caerus Mineral Resources PLC (LSE:CMRS) 12.5p, Mkt Cap £8m – Exploration sampling results from the Kambia-Kapedes project, Cyprus
Conclusion: Encouraging early-stage partial sample results from the Kambia-Kapedes project show gold grades along 175m of strike length.  Assays for other elements are awaited.
First Quantum Minerals (TSX:FQM) C$31.2, Mkt cap C$22bn – $1.25bn Kansanshi expansion approved
Conclusion: First Quantum’s investment in Zambia is the biggest single foreign direct investment in the country in a decade, and a meaningful display of confidence in the country’s mining sector. We expect to see more activity in Zambia in the coming years, from explorers to producers, given the highly prospective nature of the Zambian Copper Belt and the large structural deficit forecast in the copper market.
Greatland Gold PLC (AIM:GGP, OTC:GRLGF) 12.9p, Mkt Cap £527m – Exploration grant for the Rudall licence
Conclusion: We await further information on the significance of the Ramses anomaly and the wider Rudall licence area as exploration advances.
Rockfire Resources PLC (LSE:ROCK) 0.49p, Mkt Cap £5m – Re-analysis of historic core from Molaoi zinc project detects germanium
Shanta Gold Limited (AIM:SHG, OTC:SAAGF) 9.75p, Mkt Cap £102m – Gold recovery expected to recover in 2022 following geological challenges in 2021
Conclusion: Shanta Gold expects a recovery in gold production in 2022 following a 30% reduction in 2021 resulting from unexpected geological conditions.  The new Singida mine is progressing with initial gold expected during Q1 2023.
Versarien PLC (AIM:VRS, OTC:VRSRF)* 18p, Mkt cap £35m – Deal with global sportswear brand Umbro
