Last week's top-gaining stocks on the TSX were Almonty Industries, Aya Gold and Silver, Serabi Gold, Turquoise Hill and Perpetua Resources.

The S&P/TSX Composite Index (INDEXTSI:OSPTX) was trading at 21,611.76 by midday on Friday (November 19).

The index edged down on the last day of the week weighed down by energy stocks as fears of rising COVID-19 cases in Europe increased.

On Friday, gold gained on the back of inflation concerns with sister metal silver remaining mostly unchanged.


Last week's five TSX-listed mining stocks that saw the biggest gains are as follows:

  • Almonty Industries (TSX:AII)
  • Aya Gold and Silver (TSX:AYA)
  • Serabi Gold (TSX:SBI)
  • Turquoise Hill (TSX:TRQ)
  • Perpetual Resources (TSX:PPTA)

Here's a look at those companies and the factors that moved their share prices last week.

Almonty Industries

Canada-based Almonty is focused on the mining, processing and shipping of tungsten concentrate from its Los Santos mine in Western Spain and its Panasqueira mine in Portugal.

Over the five-day period, shares of Serabi Gold increased 10.43 percent to end the week at C$1.27.

Last week, Turquoise Hill saw its share price increase 9.09 percent last week to C$17.05.
