Last week’s top-gaining stocks on the TSX were Journey Energy, Globex Mining, Silver Bear Resources, NextSource Materials and Nexa Resources.
The index was pushed down as mining and energy stocks tracked weaker commodities; meanwhile, data showed that Canada added far more jobs than expected in February.
Last week’s five TSX-listed mining stocks that saw the biggest gains are as follows:
- Journey Energy (TSX:JOY)
- Globex Mining Enterprises (TSX:GMX)
- Silver Bear Resources (TSX:SBR)
- NextSource Materials (TSX:NEXT)
- Nexa Resources (TSX:NEXA)
