Amongst news of access rights, exploration results and changes in financing, many companies found success on the Toronto Venture Stock Exchange last week.
Below are the five with the greatest increases.
Canada Carbon (TSXV:CCB)
Canada Carbon gained 70.97 percent last week, with 5,798,246 shares traded. A carbon sciences company, Canada Carbon concentrates on graphite exploration and sales. It has many exploration properties in Canada, from Ontario to Yukon. Last week, Canada Carbon secured surface access rights for its Miller hydrothermal lump-vein graphite property for an initial period of five years. This agreement allows it to undertake graphite prospecting and exploration programs. The Miller graphite mine is in a prime location that introduces value for shareholders, as mobilization time and costs are low because of expertise close by, according to a press release from Marketwire.
Astur Gold (TSXV:AST)
Astur Gold gained 44.47 percent on a volume of 402,000 shares traded. The company is developing the Salave gold project in Asturias, Spain. The property is one of the largest undeveloped gold deposits in Western Europe. Astur Gold was granted authorization to drill at Salave in late July. The property contains 1,683,000 ounces of gold in the measured & indicated categories, and a further 338,000 ounces of gold in the inferred category.

Boss Power rose 34.62 percent on a volume of only 10,000 shares this week. The company works on discovering and developing high-grade uranium deposits in North America.

The project is in the Greenwood Mining Division of British Columbia. Boss Power’s current goal is to replicate and verify the feasibility study from decades ago using current standards.
