Arizona Mining topped last week’s TSX list, followed by Marathon Gold, Coro Mining, NGEx Resources and Paladin Energy.
The S&P/TSX Composite index (INDEXTSI:OSPTX) was down last week by 0.06 percent to 14,687.46 points.
The exchange dropping was in part due to a rise in the US dollar putting pressure on commodity prices, according to the Globe and Mail.

- Arizona Mining (TSX:AZ)
- Marathon Gold (TSX:MOZ)
- Coro Mining (TSX:COP)
- NGEx Resources (TSX:NGQ)
