5 Top Weekly TSX Stocks: Calibre Mining Rises Over 15 Percent

Last week’s top-gaining stocks on the TSX were Forsys Metals, Advantage Oil and Gas, Hudbay Minerals, Calibre Mining and Athabasca Oil. 

The S&P/TSX Composite Index (INDEXTSI:OSPTX) was on the rise last week, closing the four day trading window on Thursday (April 1) at 18,992.1.

The index was supported by the energy and mining sectors, which gained on firmer oil and gold prices.

On Thursday, gold and silver edged higher as the US dollar retreated. Copper was on track for a weekly loss, touching its lowest level in almost a month at US$8,695 per tonne.

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

  • Forsys Metals (TSX:FSY)
  • Advantage Oil and Gas (TSX:AAV)
  • Hudbay Minerals (TSX:HBM)
  • Calibre Mining (TSX:CXB)
  • Athabasca Oil (TSX:ATH)
