Last week’s top-gaining stocks on the TSX were TMAC Resources, Amerigo Resources, Fission Uranium, Mandalay Resources and UEX.
The index edged up on the back of US President Donald Trump’s plan to reopen the economy, and on reports of a potential drug to treat COVID-19, which increased investor optimism.
Last week’s five TSX-listed mining stocks that saw the biggest share price gains are as follows:
- TMAC Resources (TSX:TMR)
- Amerigo Resources (TSX:ARG)
- Fission Uranium (TSX:FCU)
- Mandalay Resources (TSX:MND)
