The ASX ended Thursday in positive territory after the unemployment rate surprised economists, falling to 3.6 per cent in May.

Seven of 11 sectors finishing the day trading higher with tech the winning sector of the day, up more than a per cent.

In the green 

GreenTech Metals’ (GRE) shares skyrocketed after confirming the presence of spodumene-bearing pegmatites at its Ruth Well nickel-copper project in WA’s Pilbara region.

Results from 22 reconnaissance rock chip samples returned “encouraging” grades of lithium mineralisation, measuring up to 1.65 per cent lithium oxide.

The company has also entered a services agreement with Obsidian Metals Group to fast-track its WA lithium exploration strategy. After a big day of news, the company’s shares shot up 223 per cent.

Errawarra Resources (ERW) also increased after revealing potential for lithium-bearing pegmatites across its Andover nickel-copper project tenements in WA.
