A GENTLE close to the week for the mining fraternity, with the Metals & Mining index closing up 0.3% on the ASX 200.

The interest in miners came with metal prices mixed and the gold patch the best space to be in.

So far as the big end of mining town was concerned, explorer and new project-leveraged Gold Road led all-comers, while investors shrugged off selling of Evolution shares by major shareholder La Mancha by marking it up more than 3% as well.

At the junior end, quintessential Brazil battler Centaurus Metals (CTM) soared 70% as it unveiled its latest acquisition, this time a nickel-cobalt exploration project near Anglo American’s 300 million tonne Jacare nickel-cobalt resource.

Centaurus has moved up around 400% since October, a nice potential turnaround after a horrendous past seven years or so.
